1. In February of this year, Ms Fiona Stewart registered a new business with Companies House called Cwningar Ltd, which is listed as being in the business of "Buying and selling of own real estate," and "Other letting and operating of own or leased real estate."
Its registered address is the same as that of Green Man Festival Limited.
Welsh Government documents show that Cwningar Ltd is the business entity which was set up for the purposes of managing Gilestone Farm.
Is this correct?
If this is correct will Cwnigar Ltd be sub-letting/leasing/renting Gilestone Farm to the Fiona Stewart’s Greenman companies?
If Cwnigar Ltd are leasing Gilestone Farm to the Greenman companies what will happen to this lease if the Greenman companies are sold? Will the lease be terminated as the whole reason for purchasing Gilestone Farm was to secure a permanent site for Greenman and not a festival site for Cwnigar Ltd?
2. Could you confirm that Gilestone Farm will not ever be used as an extension to the Green Man Festival as stated by Mr Mark Isherwood MS in his audit of The Welsh Government’s Purchase of Gilestone Farm
‘the property acquisition was being progressed to support future expansion of the Green Man Festival.. because the current festival is constrained by the lack of available land to accommodate the number of visitors that could be attracted to the event. In our view, these statements suggested that increasing the festival’s visitor capacity was the primary objective’
3. Will there be a clause in the lease which guarantees that there will be no more than three events a year and it will be capped at no more than 3000 per event as has been previously stated by WG and Fiona Stewart.
4. WG have already informed Talybont Community Council about plans for a brewery and bakery. It there plans for a shop and café/restaurant on the site.
5. When will the consultation with the WG, Fiona Stewart and the local residents from Talybont-on-Usk community take place, as promised in the meeting on the 17th November 2022.
