    By Tim Prater in Email to Folkestone and Hythe District Council Head of Paid Service Susan Priest sent 27/8/19

    Dear Susan,

    I read, with some incredulity, the press release regarding the purchase of Westenhanger Castle last week (https://www.folkestone-hythe.gov.uk/news/westenhanger-castle-will-be-the-jewel-in-the-crown-of-the-otterpool-park-development).

    My initial reaction was that I failed to understand how such a decision could possibly be made without discussion and debate by Council to do so, and that, at the minimum, such a decision would have to be referred to Overview and Scrutiny to discuss the business case at the least.
