‘False hope’ claim over council’s unspent cash (H&M Standard)
….. Councillor Jo Henderson said: “We were told to make a shopping list, but we can’t. There is nowhere near what they are saying. Mr Smith’s blasé figures have raised false hopes. There are so many stipulations about what Section 106 money can be spent on. It is like the Lidl money – that had to be spent on street furniture so we chose street lighting.
I have been trying since January to obtain the correct figures to see what we can achieve. It’s not helpful when people make comments without the full facts.”
