Wrexham Council pays out £2.1m on consultants - to save money!

Wrexham Council has paid out more than £2.1m to Price Waterhouse Cooper over the past two years - a notorious consultancy company that is advising several council on how to make cuts. Clever.

It puts into context the pitifully small amounts of money saved by closing various councils services:

Plas Madoc Leisure Centre
Nant Silyn old people's home
Community centres
Libraries
Day care in Plas yn Rhos and Caia
Reduced bin collection

The contract with PWC was signed by Labour. Now Labour is in opposition in the council, it is now criticising the spending on PWC and other consultants.

 Labour is also hoping that people will forget their role in wrecking Wrexham. They also hope that the people will forget that they voted to close Plas Madoc Leisure Centre. Good luck with that bit of re-writing history - the people who fought that decision and ensured the centre re-opened under community control know the truth.

We have good memories.
