Cllr Jon Hubbard

Wiltshire Councillor for Melksham South

Serving the community across Melksham

As well as spending £370,000 of Wiltshire tax payers money on resurfacing the car park at their temporary offices in Melksham, Wiltshire Council are leaving the lights on late into the night.

Melksham Councillor Jon Hubbard has blasted the council for wasting money on the car park, saying "If it was good enough for teachers and parents when George Ward School was located on the site I can't understand why they spent £370,000 on improvements for councillors and County Hall staff who have been relocated while their £22m new offices are built in Trowbridge

"But to see the lights left on late into the night when there is no-one in the offices is just unbeleivable. It is clear that the Conservative run Council just doesn't practice what they preach.

"They are telling residents that we all need to tighten our belts and spend less money - yet they can waste money on leaving the lights on long after people have gone home.

"They are tell us that we all need to cut down on our energy useage, yet they can leave the lights on in an empty car park, after all the staff have gone home for the night

"This is a 'Do as I say, not as I do' council."

Councillor Hubbard visited the site to check out the reports he had received about the lights being left on after local residents had contacted him.
