Shropshire Council accused of wasting money – BBC News

A council is accused of wasting money after it was revealed it was renting offices for workers a few miles away from its headquarters.

Liberal Democrat Charlotte Barnes said the staff could work out of Shirehall.

Mrs Barnes said Shirehall had plenty of room for extra staff.

“We are working really hard to make all these savings, cuts people are finding really difficult to bear, and yet we are giving council money away when we have buildings we could house these people in,” she said.

Well said Charlotte! It really is absurd to waste hard earned public money on office space when you already have space to accommodate them.
