Taxpayers Fork Out £85k For LibDem Spat

The row was between the Thornbury and Yate LibDem factions and centres on the decision to build the Cambrian Green Court ‘extra care’ housing scheme in Yate. A Thornbury LibDem councillor drew up the scheme – but a Yate LibDem councillor launched a campaign against it. The LibDems haven’t offered to pay the costs themselves, so local taxpayers have been left to foot the £85k bill.
