Swansea Uni Staff Suspensions - linked to plans to build a £200m Wellness Village Watch
The suspension of four staff members at Swansea University is linked to under-fire plans to build a £200m Wellness Village, it has been claimed.
Swansea council leader Rob Stewart said he was told the probe related to concerns over the Delta Lakes proposal. Vice-chancellor Prof Richard B Davies, dean of the school of management Prof Marc Clement, and two others were suspended in November.
No specifics were given on exactly what the links were. Prof Davies and Prof Clement are suspended on full pay, but the university has refused to say why any of the members of staff have been suspended. Mr Stewart made the revelation at a meeting of the Swansea Bay City Region joint committee and said its own review into the matter would run in parallel to a UK and Welsh Government probe into the management and structure of all 11 projects in the £1.3bn city deal.
Speaking after the meeting, Mr Stewart said: "There is a specific concern within Swansea University about part of what they've been doing and that is for the university to resolve.
