This is Gloucestershire: Taxpayer group slams ‘waste’ of £50,000 on rent



RATEPAYERS will be dismayed by the news that they paid almost £50,000 for an empty building for five years, a campaign group said yesterday.

The Taxpayers’ Alliance was reacting to the revelation that a former special needs training centre was closed in 2006, despite Shire Hall’s rental agreement lasting until this month.

Taxpayers’ Alliance campaign director Emma Boon said: “It is unfortunate that contracts agreed many years ago were simply storing up bills for taxpayers in the future. Residents will be dismayed that tens of thousands of pounds has been wasted on this one building. It might not have made financial sense to keep using the centre but simply paying for it to stand empty has been the worst outcome for everyone.”
