Council backs down on scout hut charges


A scout group in Berrylands is here to stay after campaigning from local residents and your local Lib Dem Focus team

Councillors and council officers have agreed that the scout group, which is based off Raeburn Avenue, stay at the site for the next 25 years at a reasonable rent and all the 'unreasonable' surcharges removed.

Local councillor Sushila Abaham added, “Instead of imposing arbitrary rent rises and surcharges across the borough, all community groups are to be offered the same lease terms and rates that we campaigned for.”
