All About Powys

Welcome to All About Powys 2015

Where is Powys?

The mid-Wales county of Powys brings together the three ancient counties of Montgomeryshire, Radnorshire and Brecknock.Covering some 2000 square miles, it extends from the edge of Snowdonia in the north to the Swansea Valley in the south.

Vision Statement

To present the County of Powys to a world audience in a coherent and professional manner. To act as a showcase of the economic, cultural, social and leisure activities and the wide and varied features that characterise the county in as attractive and commercially sensitive manner as to attract sustainable income, investment and tourism.

Underlying Principles

The project assumes, for example, that browsers will arrive at the site not having typed in a search for Llanwrtyd Wells, but browsers are more likely to have searched for a concept or interest like "mountain biking". The search should therefore return hits on the mountain biking facilities on the Internet of which Llanwrtyd Wells should be a part. Perusal of the pages should facilitate the browser to find accommodation and facilities of the town together with other activities that would make up a holiday package.

Additionally once arriving at that site there will be comprehensive links to other interests, communities and activities in the County. Search facilities within the overarching POWYS Web are equally important to ensure that the browsing party is helped to find other elements of interest within Powys.
The project will therefore stimulate the development of Web pages for community groups and SMEs in Powys. The sites and pages supported will be of interest and of value to communities, the general public and businesses in Powys and will assist organisations to expand their market horizons.
The project will pay a contribution of the cost of the development of a maximum of three Web pages per organisation eligible under the criteria published on this site

As part of the project it is considered very important that small and medium sized enterprises and community organisations are available through e-mail so that enquiries from Web pages can be dealt with.
