Scilly Council Overspend – Chief Executive’s and Auditor’s Letter

On Monday, Radio Scilly exclusively revealed the level of overspend on the Porthcressa regeneration. As promised during Thursday’s public meeting, we have published the official correspondence from Council Chief Executive Theo Leijser which identifies the Porthcressa overspend of approximately £600,000. As you can see, Theo has confirmed that £424,000 of that overspend will be met from the Council’s own funds, or “reserves”.
