Eastbourne’s Conservatives have again questioned the Liberal Democrat controlled borough council’s financial management after it emerged the Hampden Retail Park it owns is now worth 10% less than they paid for it.
Caroline Ansell is happy to announce that recent figures underline how there are 47,330 fewer children in workless households in the South East since 2010, a new record low since records began in 1996.
Conservative councillor Robert Smart has said a partial U-turn by Eastbourne Borough Council on who operates the Sovereign Centre is good news but the Liberal Democrats are not allaying the public’s fears on the spiralling cost of the project.
The Liberal Democrat borough council’s “lamentable handling” of major projects like the Sovereign Centre and Devonshire Park must improve otherwise the Eastbourne taxpayer will pick up the bill, the town’s Conservatives warned today.
