Powys County Council has a new Cabinet after Welsh Labour and the Welsh Liberal Democrats agreed a Progressive Partnership Agreement.
The Progressive Partnership Agreement brings together the two manifestos and will focuss on building a stronger, fairer, greener powys.
Labour Group Leader and Deputy Leader of the Council, Cllr Matthew Dorrance, said:
“I’m very pleased that both parties will work together to build consensus and agreement around a shared vision for the future where our communities prosper and the Council works for families across Powys.
“We want to build a stronger, fairer and greener future for Powys and our progressive partnership agreement sets out a road map to what we want to achieve.
“The challenge is immense, but we stand ready to serve.
Council Leader Cllr James Gibson-Watt said:
“This is an historic moment for the county. The elections earlier this month saw a huge change to the composition of Powys County Council after the electorate demonstrated a desire for change.
“Although there are political differences between both parties, our progressive partnership agreement provides a firm foundation that builds a stronger, fairer and greener future for Powys.
“I’m excited for the challenges ahead and start delivering for the people of Powys.”
