Parc Howard update, and a video

Further to my previous post Parc Howard - for the people of Llanelli? the Llanelli Herald has today published a video which includes footage of the heated public meeting held last Saturday.

THE LLANELLI HERALD investigates the Parc Howard story [Alan Evans Reporting] from PEMBS.TV on Vimeo.

The video is well worth watching and concludes with an interview with County Councillor Bill Thomas (Lab) who has a very interesting document. The document, and indeed the video, raises the question of whether or not attempts have been made to circumvent the proper tendering process.

Pic source; Llanelli Herald. There does not appear to be a company called 'Loca Select Villages
Loca Ventures Ltd also claim, within this paperwork, to have already met with three senior officials of Carmarthenshire Council; the Head of Corporate Property, the Assistant Chief Executive and the Chief Executive about the financial investment and a 250 year lease on Parc Howard mansion.

The video can also be accessed on the Llanelli Herald Facebook page here.

Llanelli MP Nia Griffith has launched a petition to keep Parc Howard in public ownership. Reaching over 1000 signatures in just two days, it can be signed here.

Hmmm, don't necessarily believe all you hear from " developers" - do your homework on them ... and their previous "developments" - paying special attention to those that exist only on paper - it's amazing how many developers never actually develop anything, just relying on "uplift" increases to fund further loans. Not saying, of course, that this necessarily applies here ...

Quite right anon, always approach with caution.
Just for the record I have been doing my homework on them...
