A "significant" increase in council tax could be introduced in Powys to pay for day centres for the elderly.

Councillors will discuss the proposal at a cabinet meeting on 20 December.

Cabinet member for adult services, Stephen Hayes, said he would be recommending the council tax rise for 2017-18, but did not specify how much it could increase by.

"If councillors are not willing to do this the day centres will close," he added.
