Due to a last minute problem I could not attend the EFFC AGM and it was too late to get a stand in. I have summarised some of the figures and added notes which partly explain the figures. If you have any other questions please email me and I will pass them onto the club. I am not sure as to the level of detail which will be made available.

There has not been much movement on the stadium development other than an informal enquiry about planning matters with Fife Council. This confirmed that there would have to be some sort of change in the current local plan for the development to get permission.

The club in fact does not have any official role to play as the application, when it is made, will be by Muir Ltd. Once notification has been made it is hoped supporters will do their best to persuade the authorities to allow the development. To help that process full briefing meetings will be held with fans and other interested parties with the timing of these to be decided by Muir's advisors.

It was suggested that it could be well into 2011 before any decision would be made by the Council.

If members have any specific questions please send them to me or Eugene but as you will have read above this is and will continue to be a very slow process.
