Broadland councillors call for business case review

At the Broadland district council on the 12th of July, Steve Riley Lib Dem Group leader presented a motion to council calling for a halt to proceeding with further collaborativeworking with South Norfolk district council until a full business case review was undertaken.

Steve argued a further study would be a responsible way forward as there are risks attached to the scheme. Further concern was raised over what exit strategies are available should either council back away from the scheme in years to come. This could lead to adverse effects on the council's tax payers, staff, services to residents and finances that could not be fully quantified or mitigated without a full business case review. The motion also called for a joint Managing Directornot to be employed at this stage until the review had taken place. Steve says "it's the Lib Dems that have shown we are responsible and professional and if running the council would not have proceeded in this way. To move forward off the back of a feasibility study without a business case review is simply a risk that should not be taken and also means that the best for Broadland may not be achieved".

The full motion can be read on the Broadland council web site, under council papers, July 12th. Steve Riley ()
