Can the council explain the financial logic of selling off a substantial piece of property in a prime location [Apsley House], at a time when interest rates on cash deposits are very low, to part- fund a project that has no starting date as yet?
Given that property is the one asset that historically increases substantially in value, what’s the financial argument for selling the building now?
