Questions about B&Q site purchase 

Dear Sir, — I believe Cheshire East residents should be told more details about the purchase of a lease for the B&Q site at the cost of £22.3m. Would the subject have been publicised if a councillor had not queried the item which apparently was not described in any detail in the relevant report? Is sufficient made public about the fund of £40m made available for such speculative use? The timing of the transaction also requires some explanation not least because whenever I have asked about funding for local projects or improvements the answer is invariably that there is no money available.
