The Chief Executive introduced the report and provided a presentation on the revenue consequences of major capital programme investments.  This built on the well-received model from an earlier meeting. The main investment schemes covered by the presentation were:


  • impacts of capital spend on revenue
  • Scheme 1 - Marleyfield Care Home
  • Scheme 2 - Glanrafon Day Care Centre
  • Scheme 3 - Theatr Clwyd
  • Scheme 4 - NWRWTP (Parc Adfer)
  • Scheme 5 - re-location to Unity House, Ewloe
  • Scheme 6 - School Investment Programme – Ysgol Penyffordd

         School Investment Programme – Connah’s Quay High School

  • school extension and remodelling
  • 21st Century Schools Programme
  • Schools Investment Programme


Councillor Richard Jones commented on the need to determine the impact of the capital programmes and suggested an impact assessment be carried out to show the benefits.  The Chief Executive acknowledged the point made. Councillor Jones also referred to the cost of demolishing County Hall phases 3-4 and asked how this would be funded.


Councillor Patrick Heesom spoke of the architectural value of County Hall  and said the building should be protected.  He commented that Mold was a good location and would like services to be retained at County Hall.  The Chief Executive emphasised that the move to Unity House, Ewloe, was a part re-location as the building did not have sufficient capacity for all staff or services provided. He said discussions would be held in the longer term around the development of the Mold County Hall campus site.  The County Hall campus was dated, expensive to run and no longer fit-for-purpose for modern office accommodation.
