Still no plan for Gilestone Farm
Following the written statement published today, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Mid Wales, James Evans MS said:
“It comes as no surprise that Welsh Government are pushing ahead with the lease. They say it is for the Green Man brand but Green man is remaining in Glanusk estate. The last information I had was that lease negotiations were with Cwningar Ltd rather than Green Man Festival Ltd.
Wales Labour Government has spent millions without a full, open tendering process
“The Labour Government has spent millions without a full, open tendering process. Public funds must be spent with care and due diligence, the money wasted on purchasing the farm could have been better spent on our Welsh NHS.
“With previous news that the Welsh Government announced that it is unlikely to recover a whopping £7.35m that it had spent on a failed racetrack project in Ebbw Vale, this is just another example of Labour’s scatter gun approach to spending taxpayers’ money without having a thought-out business plan.
Welsh Government have refused to attend a community meeting
“The Welsh Government have refused to attend a community meeting – instead, they are using the Community Council, Powys Council and National Park to hide behind. If the business case is so clear – then why not come and face the community?”
