Council leaders have revealed the cost of a report on the Johnson Drinking Fountain.

Coun Rob Gibson submitted a written question to South Holland District Council regarding the cost of a report into the siting of the historic landmark.

Architects Oglesby & Limb produced a report that supported the council’s chosen location of Ayscoughfee Gardens – and criticised the appearance of Hall Place, its former home.

A written response, issued at last week’s council meeting, clarified the fact this was not a consultant’s report on the ‘state of the town centre’, as per Coun Gibson’s question.

It added: “Officers have, however, commissioned and received a Heritage Impact Assessment that covers the history and the proposed siting of the Johnson water fountain and a condition survey of the fountain by a specialist stonemason at a total cost of £3,780 +VAT.”
