"HOW SHOULD THE MONEY THAT IS MADE AVAILABLE BECAUSE OF THE INCREASE IN THE NUMBER OF HOUSES IN OUR PARISHES BE SPENT?”
It was good to see so many people at the Public Consultation Event in the Village Hall on 11th May 2018.
Thank you to everyone who came – and for all the feedback we have received so far.
The event was held to share draft plans for how we could develop the facilities in Drakes Broughton and in particular better integrate the Outdoor Space (particularly the Playing Field), with the Village Hall.
Development of the Open space, recreation and sports facilities will be paid for from money made available through unilateral agreements between Wychavon and property developers. There is currently £62k available to be spent and as other majot developments complete it’s anticipated that a further £264k will become available to be spent on the Open Space, recreation and sports facilities.
There are no provisions for money to be spent on the Village Hall in the unilateral agreements so other sources of funding need to be used to restore and improve this very important community asset.
As people move into new houses New Homes Bonus money is made available by Wychavon, which is to be spent on community projects.
There is £64,502 New Homes Bonus money available and the Parish Council would like this money to be spent to restore and develop the Village Hall.
If you couldn't join us at the Consultation event we'd stilll like you to tell us what you think.
