AN 'UN-AMBITIOUS' budget has been prepared by Weston Town Council's ruling Conservative group, opposition members say.

AN 'UN-AMBITIOUS' budget has been prepared by Weston Town Council's ruling Conservative group, opposition members say.

Liberal Democrats on the town council made the claim as unchanged spending plans from last year were presented at Monday night's meeting.

The move will see Westonians paying £1,176,235 for the council in 2010/11, the same as it did this year.

But the Tories said the seafront water park, revamp of the Blakehay and work to Milton Road Cemetery prove they are taking the council forward.
