A welcome review of regeneration funding

Further to my recent article about the need for fairer funding for the West End, I raised the matter with the City Council's Chief Executive and he has responded positively as follows:

“I can advise you that (officers) will be carrying out a review of the allocation of Fairer Scotland Fund  allocations, and this will be brought to Committee for consideration. The points you raise about the West End and I sure equally shared by elected members in the Ferry ward will be taken on board as part of that review.”

This is a very welcome development.
