'Cash-strapped' Anglesey council slammed for spending millions on consultants
Almost £10m has been spent on external consultants in three years by Anglesey council.
The figures, which were revealed following a Freedom of Information request, show that more than £3.8m of the £9.8m total was spent by the council’s sustainable development service, which includes the planning, highways and economic departments.
The money , which was spent between 2013/14 and 2015/16, covers anyone taken in from an outside body to advise the council on various matters.
The lifelong learning service, which includes the education, heritage and youth departments, spent more than £3.5m.
