Councillor Cartwright has written to Powys CC for information.
She shares the reply:
Firstly, please note that Powys CC have confirmed that they not been directly involved in the acquisition of Gilestone Farm and that is a matter between Welsh Government, the former landowner and the Greenman Festival.
The following position was previously confirmed to the Greenman Festival.
In general terms Powys CC is very supportive of the Greenman Festival and its plans to establish a permanent base in Powys, at the same time expanding and diversifying its range of activities.
As with any such proposal we would of course need additional detailed information to consider the appropriateness of the proposed activities. Noting that any land use planning matters are for the Brecon Beacons National Park to determine and not for PCC.
Once further details are shared with the authority then they will consider them on their merits and within the relevant regulatory powers.
The concerns of the Community Council and local residents are noted however until further detail is provided there is little further that the authority can do at this stage.
I am also advised that should the Community Council wish to formally communicate with the authority on the matter then the most appropriate route would be via the portfolio holder for Prosperous Powys Cllr David Selby, whilst keeping me abreast of any developments.
