AFTER starving northern towns of cash for almost a decade, the Government’s ‘potential’ regeneration offering is a pathetic pre-election stunt (Warrington Guardian, October 31).

At last the secretary of state for housing, communities and local government has come clean about the impact of the Tory austerity cuts on Warrington.

The Tories have overseen a managed decline of our high streets, transport networks and community institutions.

The pubs, banks and post offices that are at the heart of our community have been neglected.

The Conservative Government wants Warrington Borough Council to save at least another £38 million by 2020 due to more cuts. £25 million of regeneration funding does not even come close to repairing the damage the Tories have done to our community.
