New Pound: Forbes Shire Council has resolved to move to the next stage of plan- ning for a new pound to be built in Angus Street at Landrace Estate. Director Environmental Services and Planning Paul Bennett said Council had been saving to build a new pound for the past five years.
“We have looked at a number of sites and with the Landrace Estate site been decided as the preferred option, we are in the process of developing the plans for the new pound.” Paul said it would be built in the next 12 months. “As with all public facilities Council needs to plan to upgrade or replace infrastructure as it reaches the end of its usable lifespan. The new pound will provide modern facilities for the operator making it a safer and more user friendly facility.
