This one has the council's spin written all over it. Big headline about victory but this is no such thing. The devil is in the detail. Scroll down to the end where a council officer admits no funding has been ear marked & nothing can be promised until finances have been reviewed, with no time commitment for that to take place.

At best this is as stay of execution, at worst, it's nothing more than a diversionary headline designed to dupe the public into thinking the campaign has achieved something. The only way to secure the long term future of Sparc in Bishops Castle, for example, is for campaigners to apply for a judicial review. Otherwise, all that public money from fund raising efforts will go down the drain just as soon as the council pull the plug.
