All expected really except "refurbishing a meeting room for tenants and residents at Alder House/ Lilac House on Breakspears Road". Surely this is a PFI repsonsibility - and does not benefit the community as a whole.

On the contrary - the bid explains:

"The project will benefit 40 residents from Alder and lilac Houses.
The meeting room can also be made accessible to community groups that wish to host a small meeting or function under the management of the resident association or Pinnacle Housing."

It is expected that it will be used by other groups.

This particular bid was supported by 71% of the people there.
