Labour squander £1 million at waste sites

by Group Office on 25 February, 2021

£903,919 – a staggering waste of money on traffic management at waste sites!

Our Labour-run County Council has now wasted a truly eyewatering amount of money blocking roads at some of our waste sites.

This includes the one in Pity Me which has so far cost about £300,000.We told them in April they should set up a booking system, as other councils do. They ignored us until we kicked off again over the cost and disruption. It is now likely to be the end of March before a booking system is in place.

What you would like our council to spend its money on? We’re pretty sure that £1 million on cones, barriers and road closures is not at the top of your list. Especially when its completely unnecessary.

This waste of money at any time is an absolute disgrace. With so many people struggling it’s an insult.
