TIF monies for trams?

Council Leader in the local press this afternoon calling for TIF (Tax Increment Finance)monies to be used for the tram project ...

... it's a real pity she didn't think of that possibility BEFORE submitting the TIF application to the Scottish Government - an application which has now been approved and which makes no mention of trams :-(

Mind you, worse still is the fact that nearly a year ago we suggested using TIF to potentially keep Tram Line 1B in construction (follow the links therein) - a suggestion which was rejected out-of-hand by the Lib-Dem/SNP Administration at the time.

Maybe - just maybe - the current Administration should listen a bit more to the Opposition Groups?

... mind you, I'm conscious that very much depends (on this issue) on your view on trams!
