Citizen coverage of LRDF grant

Trailed on the front page the St Andrews Citizen covers the LRDF grant - meanwhile in the letters column a reader suggests a tram.

The £180K award is covered, and mention is also made of the imminent publication of the first part of the STAG, namely the ‘Case for Change’ which is expected in early October.
