Dear Mr Wrighte


Freedom of Information Request – Private Sector Buildings


Your request for information dated 31st May 2013, regarding buildings now
owned by private sector after being built with PFI/PPPs has been forwarded
to me for response.


Ysgol Gyfun Penweddig (Penweddig Comprehensive School), Aberystwyth, was
constructed and is operated on a PFI basis by a private sector company,
and it is the only PFI property that Ceredigion County Council has been
involved with. The PFI agreement is for a term of 35 years from circa
2000, although ownership of the land in question remains with the Council.
The Council is only able to advise on its own properties, and does not
hold information on other  properties within Ceredigion which are owned or
operated by other public sector bodies, such as Dyfed-Powys Police or the
Local Health Board.


If you have any complaints regarding this reply, please write to the
Assistant Chief Executive - Legal Services, Ceredigion County Council,
Penmorfa, Aberaeron, Ceredigion SA46 OPA or by email to
[Ceredigion County Council request email].  If this fails to resolve the matter to your
satisfaction, you have the right to apply to the Information Commissioner.


Yours sincerely



Neil Hinchliffe

Chief Estates Officer
