Elliot Colburn raised the shocking independent report into Lib Dem-run Sutton Council's own heat network with the Prime Minister.
The Chartered Institute of Public Finance & Accountancy conducted the review and revealed that the financial model for SDEN was based upon false assumptions, including the inclusion of 75 dwellings that do not exist and funding grants that were not obtained. The basis on which the project was approved “was not to the standard it should have been” and the governance “was not what should have been expected for such a novel project”, according to the report.
This damning independent report is clear: Sutton Council created SDEN on false pretences and they have failed to manage the company since its inception.
We will continue fighting for residents on this issue and we are delighted that the Prime Minister will look into Sutton Council's failure personally.
