Dear Mr O'Connor,

Thanks for the information provided, which I've found very useful. I'd be grateful if you could clarify the following:

1. The information requested for costs, to date, relating to Colwyn Bay Watersports and the planned bistro appears to be excluded.

2. Costs relating to security seem to have been excluded. I'd be grateful if you could supply these.

3. Are the figures provided for income and expenditure for the last financial year only, or a total, to date, since the facility opened?

4. You have listed "Tourism/Leisure Contribution" as part of the income. Could you please clarify what this refers to.

5. You cite a total grant of £11,345,612, but this includes promenade enhancement, and road improvement, etc. What part of this, if any, was specific to, or earmarked for, Porth Eirias?

Many thanks for your help.

Yours sincerely,

B. Dean

Does the £3.8m referred to include the preparation of the sight, including piling, etc, prior to construction phase? Would this not represent the true cost of construction, as in any other large capital project? It might be worth asking for clarification on that point.

I refer of course in the previous annotation to the Porth Eirias building portion of the site's construction.

Dear Derek O'Connor,

I've not received a response to the unanswered questions from my original FOI request (last noted in my follow-up query of July 30, 2014).

Of particular importance are the costs excluded from the original council response (costs relating to Colwyn Bay Watersports, the planned bistro and total expenditure on security). I'd be grateful if you could provide these - thanks.

Yours sincerely,

B. Dean
