Can the Conservatives be trusted?

At last Thursday’s Executive meeting Cllr Phil Challis (Liberal Democrat Councillor for Loddon Ward) asked about the failure of the town centre regeneration committee to meet.

Following the meeting, Cllr Challis said: ‘Can the Conservatives be trusted to manage the multi-million pound investment in the Wokingham town centre regeneration project? The answer is we just don’t know.

‘The Executive’s response to my question was along the lines of everything is ok, trust us.

‘I believe that good governance is not saying that you are going to do the right thing, but actually demonstrating publicly that you are. One of the major themes of the coalition government is open and transparent governance. Wokingham Borough Council still has a great deal to learn in this regard.’
