It seems that Carl Sergeant, the Assembly Minister with responsibility for Communities First, is about to deliver a hammer blow to the projects across Wales.
Judging by this "leak", all new spending in Communities First areas will be frozen as a result of financial mismanagement and worse at Plas Madoc. A report by the minister is imminent and is expected to be damning regarding the specific affairs of Plas Madoc.
A total spending freeze on all new schemes will have serious implications in Caia Park, Gwenfro and Hightown Community First projects. These are all deprived areas where there is much work to be done.
