£300k QE Gardens project 'unnecessary'
6:00am Thursday 7th February 2013 in Postbag
WE are told that the cost of the £300,000 ‘refurbishment’ of Queen Elizabeth Gardens in Salisbury was ring-fenced and could be spent on nothing else.
Everyone hereabouts reckons it was not necessary; the gardens were much enjoyed by hundreds of people as they were.
Could I please have a reply as to whether the council would consider by way of contrition reducing the size of our council tax, so as to avoid such an absurd situation occurring again?
I really do challenge the council for a comment please.
