Letter to Surrey Advertiser
I very much appreciate Gordon Bridger’s analysis in your Letters page (Surrey Ad 17th June), but I have a little further financial insight as a result of my Freedom of Information Request (made in April).
It seems there is a total investment (net of the contingency of £1.1m, most of which should revert to the Council’s Capital Funds) of £25m. There is a contribution of over £470,000 for the set up costs (on top of the £750,000 ‘we’ have paid for the fit out for HQ’s chosen internal layout, equipment and finishes – included in the £25m). Then there is an annual subsidy of £325,000.
