Wednesday July 07, 2021 Wiltshire Council in Private Eye....

It's getting to be a bit of a habit for the council.

For the third or fourth time in recent months, Wiltshire Council is 'featured' in the 'Rotten Boroughs' section of Private Eye.

As well as mentioning (again) the overprovision of housing numbers in the draft Local Plan, the article goes on to look at Stone Circle (the WC owned housing company).

It states that Stone Cirle (i.e. Wiltshire Council) 'expects to rack up loans of £60.2million, an increase of £3.6m from that originally approved.'

It would seem that WC has learnt nothing from other councils which have followed a similar path - and lost £millions.

Perhaps it is just as well that the new Leader has a new cabinet.  Let's hope that they have different ideas to the last cabinet......especially where planning and housing are concerned.
