|Labour Leader Pledges to Cut Members Allowances|
Lampton Park Conference Centre to be available for hire
Cllr Jagdish Sharma, the new Leader of the Council, announced at last night’s Annual Borough Council that Labour would substantially cut the basic Members Allowance and the Special Responsibility Allowances that Councillors receive for taking on extra duties.
We have never agreed with the increases the previous Tory Administration awarded themselves, and now we can do something about it.
On a separate matter, Cllr. Sharma has also instructed Council officers to fully market the Lampton Park Conference Centre (attached to the Civic Centre) for outside functions in order to maximise its full potential for generating income.
