Test Lane Land And The Arts Complex

We are pleased that the Daily Echo has picked up on the latest episode on the scandal of Southampton's Arts Complex.

Andrew is quoted in the article.

And there is a relationship between the large amounts of money needed for the Arts Complex and the sale of land at Test Lane.

Both Labour and Tories are "in the dock" on this waste of public money at a time of huge spending cuts and cuts to jobs by Southampton City Council.

As we've said before:

Labour or Tory - Same Old Story


Back in April 2016, when challenged by Denise over the money coming from the sale of the Council's own land at the proposed Test Lane development, Labour Council Leader Simon Letts claimed in the Daily Echo that the Arts Complex was already paid for. The article is shown below.



He said, and we quote:

"It's not being spent on the arts complex, that's already been paid for."

So why did he come to Full Council on Wednesday and ask the Council to approve another £1.8m for this failing project?

It's an outrage!


And why weren't the Tories asking the right questions?

It's because they are also culpable for supporting this disastrous "Arts Complex". It adds to the other "white elephant" - the Sea City Museum whose attendance figures are consistently missing their targets.

Let us know what you think, via Twitter, Facebook or email - our contact details are on the left of this blog.

Keep fighting,
Denise and Andrew
