Can anyone confirm or deny the rumour that the Council will no longer be paid the £300k parking revenue from SLI? I was told this rumour yesterday, and nobody at the council or SLI seem to want to discuss the matter. Perhaps unsurprisingly as they don't discuss anything with me, but it would be interesting to know how accurate this rumour proves to be (or not).

Yes

So you can confirm or deny the rumour? Which is the answer to the question posed. laugh.gif

Will SLI be paying WBC the £300,000 p/a?

That will be up to SLI. WBC will accept whatever they dictate as normal! rolleyes.gif

Doh! I wish I'd seen your answer before I answered Richard's thread (same question) on 'the other channel'.... Makes me look like I'm incapable of an original thought....

Are we to assume from the deafening silence from the usually vociferous WBC mouthpieces that the rumour is true? WBC are not going to recieve the £300.000 PA!

Freedom Of Information request perhaps?

(I rather suspect that a local news forum inhabited by a small number of Newbury keyboard tappers is not the right channel to get a serious answer - unless you're after responses such as "Yeah I 'eard that too dahn the pub off a mate wot works at the cahncil.... 'e said it's disgusting")

There are umpteen opt-out's from a FoI, so WBC would just need to feel that disclosure would harm SLI's or their own commercial interests and they could simply ignore the request.

Public pressure is about the only thing that public authorities fear, and asking on here is quite a convenient way of tapping in to that.

I'd imagine Newbury Weekly News's snarling journalistic Pit Bulls will soon get to the bottom of things!

Actually, just for once I will poke my nose into politics. I Know nothing of Newbury these days.
However a relative was part of a group that democratically brought down the LBRUT Liberal Democrat Council this year.
I won't link... It is easy to find if you are interested.
Vince Is still the MP for the area and acts like a Marxist as he always was.

Yes indeed, that is me nearest to the camera after a quick browse of the forum.


In all seriousness we have got to the bottom of it and the story will be in tomorrow's NWN.

Allegedly, SLI and WBC are going to divvy up all town parking proceeds between themselves. Unconfirmed though.
