ON July 26 I emailed the chief executive of South Holland District Council (Terry Huggins) regarding the cost of the land payable to Lincolnshire County Council for the land on the A151 site.
I was ignored.
I wrote a reminder about three weeks later together with a request under the Freedom of Information Act.
I received a response from one of his staff employed by Breckland District Council.
The essence of his communication was that it was a commercially sensitive subject and he was sure that I would understand why the information was not released. I have had no response from the district council under the F.O.I. request.
However, I also wrote to Lincolnshire County Council for the price paid and received a response that an agreed figure of £114,000 subject to contract.
When will the employees at South Holland realise that it is the taxpayers who pay their wages?
To not reply shows a total disdain and contempt for the local electorate. That goes for the chief executive as well.
The truth will out eventually.
I was under the impression that this had all been sorted out for about £40,000. No wonder South Holland didn’t want the taxpayers to know!
