Cllr Jon Hubbard

Wiltshire Councillor for Melksham South

Serving the community across Melksham

In a staggering turnaround, the Conservative Cabinet have made the man they appointed just 18 month ago to lead Wiltshire Council redundant.

Leader of the Wiltshire Council Lib Dem Group Jon Hubbard was at Thursday's meeting, where he commented "This is a knee-jerk decision to a funding crisis. It's been taken by a broken administration, relying on a broken decision-making process, to fix their broken budget. This sudden and desperate change leaves me with real fears for the future of the Council.

"It's shocking to note that our neighbours on Bath and North East Somerset Council recently considered a similar proposal, but after months of deliberation involving all of their Councillors, and the commissioning of an independent study, rejected the proposal unanimously. The Conservative Leader in Wiltshire has taken this decision with virtually no involvement from elected members, no detailed study, no independent risk-assessment. Even as the process to remove the Chief Exec begins, only a few people in the Conservative Cabinet have seen the details, and know the truth about the costs.
