Halt plans to borrow a further £45m to refurbish Newcastle Civic Centre

This petition had 155 supporters

At a time when Newcastle City Council is cutting jobs and services and is unwilling or unable to fund libraries, pools, parks, street cleaning, and pavement repairs, it is unacceptable and inappropriate to significantly increase the council's debt to fund refurbishment of the Civic Centre and its offices - it is madness to borrow £45 million to make £32 million in long term savings. The residents and council taxpayers of Newcastle City Council demand that the council leadership rethink this unnecessary, ill-considered, and out of touch plan.
