The clerk has written to National Resource Wales, for their position on the purchase of Gilestone by the Welsh Government and the tenancy of the Green Man Festival, Ltd. on the land.
They have responded:
'We are not aware that Gilestone Farm forms any part of the estate owned by NRW or managed by NRW on behalf of Welsh Government. NRW has not had any involvement in any purchase or lease arrangements for this property. Consequently, we have no declared position on the sale of Gilestone Farm and subsequent involvement of The Green Man (or other parties) as a tenant of the land. With regards to any future proposals for this site, NRW has a role as a statutory consultee to relevant planning applications and would respond as appropriate to any proposals included in any application for this location. In addition, there is an environmental permit at Gilestone Farm which was issued in 2021 and is regulated by NRW, further details of which can be found on our public register here. Any new or different activities that require an environmental permit or other permission would be considered through our permit determination process and would consider the detail of any application made.'
