Where’s the money gone?

On the 11th February, the Cabinet of the Forest of Dean District Council reported that £138,000 would have to be refunded to the developer of a proposed Solar Farm at Awre. This was due to errors in the consideration of the planning application.

A far reaching review was promised. The South West Audit Partnership (SWAP) were tasked with the job.

At the meeting of the Audit Committee on 17th March an officer from SWAP gave a verbal update and a written report was promised for the end of April. An extraordinary meeting of the Committee to consider the report could then take place.

To date, no report has been provided for members. Richard Leppington (UKIP Bream) has consistently called for an in depth member review of what went wrong. "My constituents have lost a great deal of money. We could have used this money to keep Council Tax unchanged this year. I want to know what went wrong. I hope that we don't have to wait as long as we have waited for the Chilcott report into the Iraq War!"
