The trustees of Notting Hill Carnival Ltd (NHCL) met on Tuesday 15 June and were due to issue a statement today about the shape the iconic festival would take this year.
However, Soca News has been told that the announcement on whether to go ahead or cancel has been postponed.
Even if there had been positive news from NHCL today it would have been too late to ensure participation by some of the mas bands and other groups. Some mas band leaders have told Soca News privately that they were not expecting to play mas on the road this year and had adjusted their plans accordingly.
