Congratulations to Observer about shopping centre comments

Congratulations to “Observer” on their observations upon the news of Wealden District Council’s purchase for £12m of the Hailsham Shopping Centre.

Gareth Looker, Chair Wealden Constituency Labour Party.

So says Gareth Looker, Chair Wealden Constituency Labour Party, who lives in Uckfield.

He goes on to say: “Wealden Council’s competence to make and run this kind of investment was rightly questioned, particularly given that the previous owner wished to sell!

“Moreover an answer was sought as to why a commercial investment with borrowed money should be made by the council when the district is crying out for money to be spent on affordable housing.

“I, and the rest of my colleagues in Wealden Constituency Labour Party, will be interested to read Wealden District Council’s response to the points you have raised and are no doubt seeking a reply upon.”
