Golf Resort cash bid called in for questioning

Starts

A move to spend a further £600,000 on Wirral Council’s hopes to create a ‘golf resort’ has been called in by 18 Conservative Councillors.

The ‘call in’ of the recent decision by the Council’s Cabinet means that the spending will be on hold until it can be scrutinised at a Town Hall committee.

Moreton and Saughall Massie Councillor Chris Blakeley said: “Wirral Council has already spent more than £230,000 on assessing whether this plan is feasible.

“We are now faced with an ever-rising bill, at a time when Council spending should be focused on priority services. We believe a decision to spend further money on the project should be looked at more carefully.

“The Council must also complete its consultation on the proposal before committing further cash. Otherwise, it will be exposing the Council Taxpayer to the risk of losing almost a million Pounds on a project that may never see the light of day.”
