David Jones MP has further blogged on this issue, here, and I can only support his call for greater transparency, our council, for the last 4 years, have shrouded themselves in secrecy, treated us like children and wasted hundreds of thousands of pounds in the process.
I certainly believe that heads have got to roll for this latest, now well publicised, cock-up. Cllr Edwards needs to be questioned about his part in all of this, for example; were the full council made aware of the 3 lease options? And why was the pier purchased prior to the results of the funding when it didn’t need to be. What, if any, input was there from local Colwyn Bay Councillors, I know funds were withheld by Cllr Chris Hughes whilst he was chairman of the pier’s charity but what other involvement has there been?
We have to take our hats off to David Jones, at least he is trying to force the Councils hand, like us, he too wants the truth to come out
The pier is now in the hands of the tax-payer, any further meetings MUST be held in public and open to scrutiny, let us shake the barrel squarely and see what rats run out.
