STATEMENT OF THE REASONS FOR THE DECISION:

 

The report soght approval to allocate section 106 funding towards new play and recreation facilities at Meigh Road Playing Fields in Werrington.

 

ANY ALTERNATIVES CONSIDERED:

 

There were in effect two options available, option 1 had been presented as 1a and b as it was dependent on the application of funding being successful. The options therefore were:

 

Option 1a - To allocate £35,000 from the s106 allocation to enable a BMX pump track to be installed at Meigh Road Playing Fields, Werrington. This allocation would form part of the match funding along with external funding from British Cycling: Places to Ride fund (£20,000) if successful. The total required for the project was £55,000 and we currently are awaiting the outcome from the submission to British Cycling. (RECOMMENDED)

 

Option 1b - To allocate the full amount required (£55,000) from the s106 allocation to Werrington Parish Council to enable a BMX pump track to be installed at Meigh Road Playing Fields, Werrington, if the funding bid to British Cycling was unsuccessful. (RECOMMENDED)

 

Option 2 -

To not allocate any funds from the s106 allocation to Werrington Parish Council for the BMX pump track at Meigh Road Playing Fields, Werrington. (NOT RECOMMENDED)
