The plan to employ an Officer at the Town Hall to find and encourage new businesses to come to Melksham was rejected by the Tories at last month’s budget setting meeting.

Cllr Hubbard explained to FOCUS that the plan would have meant adding just 4p per week to the average households Council Tax bill.

“That’s only £2.40 per year” Jon added. “Local residents are having to spend more than that on transport every week to visit other towns because we don’t have the shops here in Melksham.

“I don’t understand why the Tories blocked this. They are clearly happy with increasing the Council Tax bills as they blocked Lib Dem calls for a Council Tax freeze at the District and County Councils last year and instead raised tax bills by a whopping £49.53 for a band D property.”
