At the Area Board meeting on Thursday, click to see agenda, Stanhope gave an update on the Maltings re-development.
They have stated that a Bus Station interchange WILL now be included within the new development. This is great news for Salisbury, but this decision must now surely make the City council think again about wasting more public money (£10,000 so far allocated) on consultancy fees, about it taking over the old Bus Station site and running it as a Bus Station. Any final decision, could cost us £100,000′s in tax payer’s money.
Click here to see the Minutes of the City council meeting on 20th January, which approved further spending on this now ‘pet scheme’. For info, all Conservative councillors voted for this, along with one Independent and one green councillor.
A valid point has been made, listing it as an ‘asset of community value’, but to waste more public money is now becoming more than a joke.
