WORNINGTON GREEN

COSTS OF CONSULTATION


We asked a Planning expert to estimate how much has been spent so far ...

 

£10m and rising!

 

THINK WHAT YOU WOULD DO WITH £10m

 

WOULD YOU SPEND IT ON EMPTY WORDS?

 

Residents have been asking for some time, just how much is KHT paying out for consultants. Cllr EDC used the Freedom of Information Act to find out just how much is being frittered away on pointless consultation, when everyone KNOWS what people think.


The managing director refused to divulge the information requested. As a housing association they don’t have to be registered with the FoI so can choose whether or not to give out information. But never mind, we put our heads together, listed all the consultants involved in the past seven years, and asked someone ‘in the business’ to give a fair estimate. So here it is:


2001/2

Floyd Slaski                              estimate    £100,000

Iris Consulting                                                50,000

Nigel Rose and Ptners                               50,000

2002/3

MORI Survey                                             100,000
