Grant reductions imminent

Full Council meeting next Thursday (11th March), so papers for the meeting will be in the public domain tomorrow (on CPOL) ...

... worth repeating that no organisations have yet been told, for definite, what's happening to their funding allocations - I'm sure there will be a furious round of formal notifications tomorrow morning prior to the spun-details appearing in the local paper around lunchtime Friday.

There will, however, be no hiding the fact that a huge amount of money was taken out of the grant-allocation pot by the SNP/Lib-Dem Coalition on 11th February - and that reduction will mean real pain (if not closure) for numerous organisations come the 11th March meeting.

More on this to follow - sadly.
