Welshpool has a population of 6,269, it is an area centre which has good road and rail communications with the rest of Mid-Wales, the West Midlands and the North West. The Station covers Welshpool and the surrounding area including the parishes of Berriew, Guilsfield, Trewern, Castle Caereinion, Forden and Middletown. Welshpool is a small market town bordering both North Wales and Shropshire and as such is a gateway for people wishing to travel West to the coast.

The main risk for Welshpool and its surrounding communities are the various road networks in the area; in particular the A458 (T), A483 (T), A490 and several B class and unclassified roads. The area is predominantly made up of small residential areas and a few light industrial trading estates that increase the risk. The town has a busy shopping area with several public houses and hotels. Also located in the town are several primary schools, one secondary school and a hospital.

The main coast line railway also runs through Welshpool. The River Severn and several tributaries run through the town and during the autumn/winter this is a cause for concern in relation to flooding incidents. Powys Castle is located approximately half a mile from the town centre and is a national asset.
