South Ayrshire Council fails to disclose consultants reports

Council chiefs have failed to go public with consultants’ reports costing £250,000 of taxpayers money.

The Ayrshire Post has been forced to seek legal advice after their request for copies of the documents was ignored.

The move comes after South Ayrshire Council breached their obligations under the Freedom of Information Act.

The newspaper submitted two requests to freedom of information officers about the Gaiety Theatre on January 23 this year.
