EDUCATION, WALES

The Diocese of Swansea & Brecon (Educational Endowments) (Llandegley) (Wales) Order 2012

Made

27 June 2012

Coming into force

1 August 2012

The Endowment has been shown to the satisfaction of the Welsh Ministers to be or to have been used in connection with the provision of religious education in accordance with the tenets of the Church in Wales at a voluntary school within the meaning of section 32 of the Education Act 1996, the premises of which have ceased to be used for the purposes of such a school, and that the requirements of section 554(3) of the Education Act 1996(1) are fulfilled.

Application for an Order making new provision for the use of the Endowment has been made to the Welsh Ministers by the Swansea & Brecon Diocesan Trust, which body appears to the Welsh Ministers to be the appropriate authority of the Church in Wales for that purpose.

Notice of the proposed Order and of the right of persons interested to make representations has been given in accordance with the provisions of section 555 of the Education Act 1996.

No representations have been made on the proposed Order.

The Foundation assets consist of the site of what became the above school and school house comprised in the Founding deed, and buildings thereon (or their net proceeds of sale), and also any income derived from those assets before the coming into force of this Order.
