No Rent Rise?

I see Liberal Democrat run SNTC, with support of some Conservatives, is refraining from rent increases for "Community Groups".  This is seen as supporting local clubs. These are the following charities:

This is wrong! Each building should be charged the market rate. It is then up to each charity to apply for grants and exemptions. All they are doing is making a grants "off the books" rather than on the books. Why should charities which lease property from the Town Council be treated differently to other organisations?
