Dear Fife Council,

Please send details on the last administrative grant made to each of the established community councils operating within your authority. Where the grant is based on a parameter, such as population, population density, or area please also include these details. I would appreciate the data in machine readable format, e.g. Excel or CSV, rather than a PDF version.

Yours faithfully,

Lee Kindness

Elaine Walters, Fife Council
