Oxfordshire County Council prefers plush resort to its own HQ

TRANSPORT chiefs at Oxfordshire County Council spent more than £4,500 on a meeting and overnight stay at a prestigious resort. Seven highways officers attended the two-day workshop at the £50m Heythrop Park resort, near Enstone.

Despite being 15 miles from County Hall, council employees stayed overnight at the resort, where facilities include a swimming pool, health spa and golf course.

The meeting, which was held on January 17 and 18, was in the same month the council’s cabinet agreed a £119m of cuts, including slashing £13m from the transport budget.

My comment: Highway officers pig out at taxpayer's expense even though their budget is cut and the number of potholes is increasing.
