The Working Neighbourhoods Fund is paid as part of area based grant. All local authorities that are eligible for working neighbourhoods fund have received a reduction in their area based grant funding. Where revenue grants to local authorities have been reduced, no local authority will face a reduction of more than 2% overall. Wigan will receive a reduction of 0.8% (£2.92 million) in their total main revenue grant allocation for 2010-11. Local government will be free to make their own decisions about where savings are found. We have ensured that councils have the flexibility to take decisions locally on how to deliver the savings needed.
