‘Compass Point answers needed’

EDITOR - I would be interested in a public statement from ELDC about the progress of the joint venture company established last year at a cost to council tax payers of over £4.5 million to transfer “back office” services of ELDC and South Holland D.C. called Compass Point Business Services (East Coast) Ltd.

My questions are-

Have the predicted savings to the council tax payer, £20 million, over 10 years, come to fruition?

Has this company successfully tendered and won business from other council’s in the form of “back office” services?

Will more council taxpayers money be required to fund ths company in the future?

I understand that the answers to these questions are-

No, No and Probably.

Perhaps ELDC would like to comment via your letters page?
