Come on guys get with the game and save some money

£30m facelift for town hall that’s got to save £60m

Trafford Council is spending nearly £30m rebuilding its town hall – while facing £60m in cuts. The council is to revamp the modern extension on its Stretford headquarters and repair the 1930s part of the building in a £28.9m overhaul. Bosses say it will save millions in the long term by halting a spiralling repair bill. But opposition councillors slammed the move. The council, which expects to slash £60m under next week’s spending review, will fund the project mainly through borrowing. It will take out a £26m loan, finding the rest from its reserves.

  • what this article really shows is the total delusion of the public sector.

    Simply all you need to say is we will keep the repairs going at this time because we simply cannot afford to take on debt or plunder resouces.

    To actually justify this means this council is deluded
