The post below, with its mention of Skypark, got the Owl thinking… never a good thing.
Is it time someone asked for the information about WHY EDDC chose Skypark as the site for its new HQ and then returned to its original decision? It won’t come voluntarily though, Owl thinks.
There can’t be much “commercial sensitivity” now that it has fallen through and what little there is (if any) should be easily redacted.
A few questions spring to mind – maybe you have more.
Who suggested Skypark?
What was the financial thinking behind it?
What interventions did other partners (DCC, St Modwyn) institute?
What correspondence did EDDC enter into and with whom about its decision to change to Skypark?
Why did they pull out so suddenly?
Why did the plans fall foul of EU directives, who noticed that and when?
How much was spent on the abortive project?
Owl thinks we should be told.
