Gilestone Farm, Report from meeting 17/11/22 with Welsh Government Officials
Councillors discussed the next steps from the meeting of the 17th November 2022
Following questions from the public the Chair clarified that it was the Community Councils understanding that the Welsh Government would make a decision by Christmas to determine whether it would continue to move ahead with Green Man. Should this be the case the Welsh Government will then investigate all issues attached to the business plan. The Chair also confirmed that Charles Weston, the current tenant, holds the commercial lease until October 2023.
It was agreed to contact the Welsh Government to set a date for its next meeting.
The Community Council has written to the Minister of Economy concerning its plans for the Orchard Walk following the purchase of Gilestone Farm. Response below:-
I can confirm there are no plans under discussion to rescind this informal use of the area. The use of the Orchard Walk was agreed via an informal permission with the previous owner and has been agreed to continue under the Welsh Government ownership of the site.
