The Chair welcomed everyone to the AGM meeting, explaining that it had been postponed to allow resolution of the Asbestos review. Carmarthen County council are now dealing with the encapsulation and removal of asbestos from relevant sites.
The FSEG Lease is now being drawn up following discussion of the draft with county officers. A solicitor has been appointed to act on behalf of FSEG. A vote of thanks was proposed and carried for the hard work of all the officers and Cllr. Mair Stephens. It was surmised that more people would need to get involved to run the centre, once opened.
The secretary confirmed that paid legal work was proceeding with the FSEG Lease, these included searches in respect of environmental and flooding risks. The risk of flooding appeared to be low.
The sub -lease for the Doctors Surgery was proceeding separately as part of the LHB and County council agreement. This included a Legionella survey which would become a duty once the Lease is signed.
The overall date of completion was estimated as May 1 2015.
There was a break clause for both leases in two years involving six months notice and a further break clause after five years. It was decided that FSEG should investigate and clarify further the notice periods so as to enable a timely response to any proposed changes of occupancy by the Surgery.
The treasurer submitted a detailed report of the accounts outlining the utilisation of a £13.6k Rural Development grant, leaving a balance of £7.75 at the end of the financial year. A current balance of £3,468.75 was reported following receipt of a Community Council Grant.
