Subject: Emailing: RSN Fair Share Petition

Dear All

For a long time we have been fighting to get a fair share of central taxes

and through the DCN (District Councils Network) we have been pointing out

how unfair the urban/rural split is. In this last Spending Review, we were

promised a fair share but the Treasury then reneged and used the "Damping"

effect to ensure the promised adjustments were not only negated, but for

some of us, made it worse.

Please get as many people to sign and return to The Rural Fair Shares

Campaign as per the letter.

Thank you on behalf of all of us


Paul Diviani,

East Devon District Council - Leader

Yarty Ward Member with the parishes of All Saints, Chardstock, Membury &

Yarcombe Exeter & East Devon New Growth Point Board - Chairman Blackdown
