Business eye? more like small local business poke in the eye!
Antur Dwyryd-Llyn are in the hands of the receivers!
The above is a list of the directors who received emoluments of £36,769 last year, and yet couldn't stear the agency towards paying small local business they claimed to be assisting.
What makes this worrying for local business is that these directors hold over 50 directorships between them! The Agency has close ties with the main RDA the WDA, ELWA, the council, Gwynedd economic Partnership and many other organisations.
It was central to the delivery of training and small grants and business advice and the delivery of assembly and european programes. It should never have been allowed to get into this pitifull situation. Not only has it damadged it's own image but, has sevearly damadged the prospects of serious inward investment and set back economic growth locally, GDP and the faith of small local business in the local institutions and those who run them.
Antur Dwyryd was responsible for the Contract shop
This was supposed to promote inter-trading and local sourcing of goods, services and products. (and presumably paying for them!)
and Gwynedd business news
a quarterly publication, Produced by Antur Dwyryd Llyn, the publication tracked key initiatives and current business developments, as well as highlighting funding programs and other schemes available for local companies. (ironic)
The fact that WEFO decided not to fund some schemes had been put forward as a reason for the problems earlier in the year. This echoes calls made in June 2001-
"Dafydd Wyn Jones , managing director of Antur Dwyryd Llyn the local business development agency has added to comments made by others that the underfunding of business development grants in Gwynedd could be detrimental to the local economy.
He blames the Objective 1 National panel, who only agreed to half of the sum asked for in the bid last year. ( £1.4m + matched funding to make £2.8m).His comments come shortly before the Council consider alternative ways of funding business grants later this week. The initial plan was for the project to run for 3 years, but the funding has already run out.
Figures quoted for 2000/1 were- advisors had dealt with £5,751,946 of development project, 182 new jobs were created and 89 new start-ups were created. Up until the end of January this year, 296 new jobs were created, and 107 new start-ups during the 10 month period. 1999/2000 saw 200 new jobs and 66 new start-ups."
The euro cash cow will inevitably run dry, and all businesses should try and keep to their core, and stated business and not take their eye off the ball.
Antur Dwyryd-Llyn was a non-profit making Company, Limited by Guarantee which had a volunteer Board of Directors, the majority of whom were drawn from the private sector. Representatives from partner organisations in the public sector were also members of the Board. Antur Dwyryd was originally formed in 1988, North West Wales' first ever Enterprise Agency.
This was the direct result of a Welsh Office initiative and was supported by the Development Board for Rural Wales (DBRW); Welsh Development Agency (WDA), Gwynedd County Council; and the then District Councils of Meirionydd and Dwyfor, and the private sector, notably ICI, and Nuclear Electric (now Magnox/BNFL).
A community based initiative, Antur Llyn, was established to cover the Pwllheli area. In April 1995, with the full support of all partners, the organisations merged to create Antur Dwyryd Llyn. The following year, April 1996, Gwynedd Council invited the agency to extend its area to include South Meirionydd including the main settlements of Bala, Dolgellau, Tywyn and Barmouth.
