Fair Funding campaigners set to address Royal Borough at meeting tonight

Fair Funding campaigners set to address Royal Borough at meeting tonight

Tom Roddy

Fair Funding campaigners will have their say on the Royal Borough's decision to award £480,000 worth of developer funding to Holyport College at tonight's full council meeting.

A representative of the group will have the opportunity to speak at the meeting, held in the Desborough Suite at Maidenhead Town Hall, after a petition received more than 1,600 signatures.

The petition asked for the council to revoke a decision made at a full council meeting on Tuesday, April 28 which saw the school in Holyport College granted £480,000 of developer funding for the Stafferton Way development.

The lead petitioner will be given five minutes to address full council.

The Royal Borough will also debate a motion issued by Cllr Simon Werner (Lib Dem, Pinkneys Green) asking the council to restructure its process of allocating school funding in order to make it 'more transparent'.

The meeting begins at 7.30pm.

The Advertiser has extended its deadline for Viewpoint to 9am tomorrow (Wednesday). Send them to editor Martin Trepte on martint@baylismedia.co.uk.
