Subject / Decision

1.

DECISION NOTICE

RESOLVED that the Decision Notice for the meeting held on the 22nd October 2014 be signed as a correct record.

2.

REPORTS NOT FOR PUBLICATION

RESOLVED pursuant to The Local Government Act 1972 as, amended by The Local Government (Access to Information) (Variation) (Wales) Order 2007 that the following items were not for publication as the reports contained exempt information as defined in Paragraph 14 of Part 4 of Schedule 12A to the Act.

3.

SOUTH WEST WALES PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT FUND PROPOSED OFFICE DEVELOPMENT ON LLYS Y BARCUD, CROSS HANDS BUSINESS PARK

Following the application of the public interest test it was RESOLVED pursuant to the Act referred to in minute no. 2 above not to publicise the content of the report as it contained exempt information relating to the financial or business affairs of any particular person (including the Authority holding that information) (Paragraph 14 of Part 4 of Schedule 12A to the Act).

The public interest test in this matter related to the fact that the report contained detailed information about the business and financial affairs and ambitions of the applicant. In this case, the public interest in transparency and accountability is outweighed by the public interest in maintaining confidentiality, as disclosure of this information would be likely to damage the applicant at this stage.

The Executive Board Member considered an application for assistance from the South West Wales Property Development Fund. It was noted that no financial commitment was required from the County Council and that a due diligence check had been undertaken on the applicant by the Welsh Government’s finance team and the project had been deemed medium to low risk. It was further noted that the tendering exercise had satisfied the agreed procurement rules.

RESOLVED that the following application be approved subject to the usual terms and conditions and those specified within the report including a cross-guarantee:

Applicant / Project Grant Award

Enzo’s Lettings Ltd.- proposed office development, Llys y Barcud, Cross Hands Business Park..
