    BSF in Leicestershire

    Does anyone have any current information about what's going on in this area? I'm getting some confusing information from internal sources, but whilst I believe we're due to start 2012/2013, and that my particular area is not in the first wave for the county, I can't help but wonder whether the wheels are in motion as yet. I assume they will all proceed as planned unless someone pulls the plug on the money, but I did wonder whether the recent Government cash-splash had pushed BSF any closer.

    Cheers.

    Lot of info is in pdf documents that linked to on this forum while back.

    This is all depends on Leicestershire being approved (which as mr brown wants to spend his way out I suspect will) and of course timetable could change.
