Sent the below to Cllr Pervez Cllr Ward Cllr Clarke and Van De Larrschott….
The Councils proposed budget includes a possible spend of £25 million of the earmarked reserves in 2010/11 to fund the City Council’s service redesign and remodelling programme. Yet no further mention is mentioned on what items and services this funding includes?
Why was this available funding not included in the consultation documents on the budget proposals?
What exactly will this £25M be spent on?
Cllr Ward, yes I have copied this into 3 councillors and chief exec in the hope that one of you knows the answer and can reply. Also I am still waiting for reply to the situation of the road Changes to Hanley as email to yourself earlier (whose funding is funding in place? Has planning been approved? Who has been consulted?) As Cllr Clarke has been copied in maybe he can reply on funding aspect.
Cllr Pervez and Cllr Clarke I have still to receive a reply requarding the £20,000 investigation into Galmor and if the Council will be loaning them £1M?
You are all invited to reply as individuals or may forward AGAIN to your officers for a reply if you need to, I will copy orginal emails below.

For Cabinet members and Council leadr can you answer the below questions?
If Galmor are unable to keep to the loan repayments, and the Council inherit the Wade site,
- What is the market value of land/building?
- Could the Could resell the land/building immediately with out any redevelopment?
- How much would it cost the Council to redevelop the land/building if needed to re-sell?
Who are Galmor? as neither ”Galmor Capital” or “Galmor investment” are registered with company house, they do own a few empty buildings and along with their partner South Court Management own Zanzibar in Newcastle and rent out an office block in Birchwood, Warrington. But what of their background
