3.            XCEL PROJECT, CARMARTHEN

The Executive Board Member considered a report detailing a request from Towy Community Church to vary the present lease of the former St Ivel buildings, Llansteffan Road, Carmarthen, to allow sufficient time to undertake the necessary funding and implementation work to enable completion of phase 2 of the Xcel Project. The Council’s support for this project had, to date, helped create employment for 46 people and the phase 2 proposals were expected to create an additional 15 jobs.

 

RESOLVED that a deed of variation be granted to Towy Community Church to extend the timetable for completion of works in relation to phase two of its lease with the Council to 31/12/2021.

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            REPORTS NOT FOR PUBLICATION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as amended by the Local Government (Access to Information)(Variation)(Wales) Order 2007 that the following items were not for publication as the reports contained exempt information as defined in Paragraph 14 of Part 4 of Schedule 12A to the Act.

 

</AI4>

<AI5>

5.            COUNCIL TAX - DISCRETIONARY DISCOUNTS

 

Following the application of the public interest test it was RESOLVED pursuant to the Act referred to in minute no. 4 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 information regarding individuals that were liable to pay council tax and maintaining the exemption under paragraph 14 of Schedule 12A of the 1972 Act outweighed the public interest in disclosing the information contained in this report as disclosure would unjustifiably reveal confidential personal information about other individuals.

 

The Executive Board Member considered a report detailing applications received for discretionary reduction of Council Tax.

 

It was noted that regulations had been introduced with effect from April 2004 giving local authorities discretionary powers to grant locally determined Council Tax discounts or reductions, over and above existing statutory reductions.

 

RESOLVED:

5.1

That the outstanding balance of £980.08 relating to application reference 60227623 be written off;

5.2

That application references 60187898 and 60182482 received for the grant of Council Tax Discretionary Discount be refused.
