Wokingham Borough Council Downgraded in C.P.A. Report on Performance

March 6, 2009 12:00 PM

Wokingham Liberal Democrats are appalled that Wokingham Borough Council has been judged as "going backwards" in the latest government study of the council's performance. A detailed review of the Council has resulted in the Council being downgraded from a 3-star council to a 2-star council.

Councillor Prue Bray (Leader of the Liberal Democrat Councillor Group and councillor for Winnersh ward) said, "This is a terrible indictment of how the Conservative led council has failed its residents. This is one of the few councils in the country that is actually going backwards rather than improving.

"The Tories have only themselves to blame for this dire result. This is a result of their poor leadership. They need to get their priorities right. And they need to learn to listen, both to the professional advice from their own council officers and to what the public wants.

"This is another wake-up call to the Conservative-run Council to get their act together. How many wake-up calls do they need before they take action to put things right?"
