Lib Dems demand more commitment on ending out of county investments

by willforster on 10 May, 2019

Surrey County Council own a broad range of land and property assets both in and outside of Surrey, with a total value of around £1.5 billion. At the last Council Cabinet meeting, it was revealed that the County Council will be ‘pausing’ investment out of Surrey for the time being whilst they evaluate the use of existing properties.

This is a move that my Lib Dem colleagues and I have been long calling for. However, simply ‘pausing’ the investment out of county is not far enough – the Lib Dems demand a commitment that investments will be made in county and into benefitting the residents.

We want a permanent restructuring of the County Council’s investment strategy, and a permanent commitment to in-county property investment to support economic growth and develop prosperity.
