Cllr Dyer was recently asked about the costs incurred by the Council on consultants who reviewed the County Council's response to their Western Growth Corridor planning application.
Cllr Dyer said:
"In the grand scheme of the City Council budget, £2550 may not seem a significant sum, however, as an example, the closure of the uphill toilets was to only save just short of £10k, which Labour tell us they cannot afford.
We must also consider this in the context of the £2million plus which has already spent on this project, without a brick being laid.
The consultant's report may have provided justification for the council to recommend approval, but it hasn’t alleviated the concerns of the highway authority, the third of the City Councillors who voted against this project and the hundreds, if not thousands of local residents who will be negatively impacted by the development in its current form."
