    A public meeting is planned regarding the new HQ. I have a feeling this whole situation is going to drag on for years: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...gton-1-8528518

    Coventry council claimed substantial savings for building a new HQ. I don't believe those savings will ever be realised and personally think the whole scheme was just to get a vanity project off the ground.

    I'm unsure as to the background with this scheme, but I'll bet at some stage someone will claim 'savings' from the public purse.

    300,000 has already been bandied about!

    I wonder just how realistic that figure is?

    I note they call this an ongoing consultation when in reality it is a brainwashing exercise. The new building is going to go ahead come what may.

    Charges will solve the parking problem - it'll drive people away (literally!) from Leamington: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...plan-1-8638748

    Ask Coventry about what their parking charges have done for the city!

    The council won't give a sh*t. They'll do what they want, and stuff those paying their wages.

    It's high time those suggesting these figures should be held accountable. And when the savings don't materialise (because they won't!) they should be held for malfeasance in public office and face doing time for misleading (lying to) the general public.

    Get a political party to put that in their manifesto and you have the UK political system sewn up for years to come.

    The Tories have decided what's going to happen, and don't care what anyone has to say: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...gton-1-8686248

    The top of the slippery slope of delays, budget overspend and general farce has been reached: https://www.leamingtoncourier.co.uk/...nned-1-8706976
