Cardiff connections - Jac o' the North's post - updated

Update 14th August 2017; Mr James and Cardiff Bay - the Western Mail reports

Update 19th June 2017; A further post from Jac o' the North - Baywatch 2

* * *

Last week I made a passing reference to council chief executive Mark James' business affairs relating to property in Cardiff.
Jac o' the North has also picked up on these recent developments, via Companies House, so, for quite a bit more than a passing reference, have a read of his latest post; Baywatch

I'll assume that Mr James made full disclosure of his Directorships in his Officers Declaration of Personal Interests.
Section 10.2 states that "Employees must declare in writing to their Chief Officer any financial and non-financial interests that they consider could bring about conflict with the Aurhority's interests"
I'll assume that HR and Mr Dole would have seen copies of this disclosure, as the Official Guidance Document continues to state that
" Failure to disclose interests could result in formal disciplinary action".
Anyone fancy a quick FOI request!

That is absolutely correct.

I've got more information now, and a fuller understanding of what Mark Vincent James is up to in Cardiff Bay. I shall be writing a follow-up piece once the dust has settled after the election.

I look forward to your follow on piece. Watch your back as this man is well protected not only by his executive but also by PSOW, Welsh Gov and as complainants/whistleblowers/bloggers have found our own Dyfed Powys Police.
