Gilestone purchase should never have happened
Commenting on the news that nesting ospreys have halted the Labour Welsh Government’s Gilestone farm plans, James Evans MS, Welsh Conservative Shadow Minister for Mid Wales said:
“The purchase of Gilestone Farm should never have happened in the first place.
“Conservation concerns were raised early on in this process, as were concerns about the purchase of the farm itself, and now the Labour Government finds itself holding an expensive asset for a purpose completely alien to their initial plan.
“The next time the Labour Government plans to get the cheque book out, they should listen to local concerns and conduct themselves with far greater transparency.”
