Fair Funding campaigners want council discussions to come to an end

A list of outstanding questions will be put to the Royal Borough on Monday as Fair Funding campaigners look to bring discussions to a close.

This will be the third public meeting held at Maidenhead Town Hall, hosted by Alison Alexander, director of children’s services and now managing director of RBWM.

Campaigners have been ‘incensed’ by Ms Alexander’s decision to only answer questions regarding the Holyport College funding issue at meetings.

Campaigner Jo Smith, of Belmont Crescent, said the council officers had either not answered the questions or they were not satisfied with the way they had been answered.

“It is utter frustration,” she said. “I don’t believe this is how a local authority should act.”

The council’s controversial decision to award Holyport College £480,000 of developer funds was passed at full council on April 28, leaving parents of other schools across the borough angered and questioning the decision making process.

As a result, a group called Fair Funding for Borough Schools was created, which has petitioned the council to revoke the decision and continues to demand answers.

The meeting will begin at 6.30pm in the council chamber.
