Upavon Parish Council CIL and s106 monies
Following the Upavon Parish Council`s meeting on the 22nd July, it was resolved to hold a Public Meeting of the villagers of Upavon, the purpose of this meeting is to inform the Village regarding the forthcoming availability of funds under the Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) and s106 funds, with reference to the Garage site and the Whistledown View developments.
The date of this meeting is yet to be confirmed, as much will depend on the COVID19 regulations regarding meetings of more than six people and how we can safely conduct such a gathering.
However, prior to this meeting Upavon Parish Council would like to invite anyone in the Village to put forward any constructive proposals and ideas of how best this money should be spent for the benefit of the community as a whole.
The amount of money available is approx £30,000 (CIL) and approx £60,000 ( s106 )
From this the Parish Council will deduct amounts to complete projects already required in the playgrounds This will be approximately £12,000 to £15,000.
The Parish Council would ask the Villagers to take careful note of the Rules and Conditions that govern the spending of CIL and s106 monies.
CIL : For the provision, improvement or replacement of existing amenities, facilities and services, or anything else that is concerned with addressing the demands that any New Development places on an area.
s106 : To be used for the provision of outdoor activities, children`s play areas, formal sports areas, leisure features for “Lower Park and Andover Road Park“ for overall use by adults and children.
Once all monies have been received by the Parish Council there will be a TEN year time limit for money to be used or confirmed plans to be in place.
We will also discuss, at the meeting, the legal requirements on the Parish Council, to use part of these funds on items that would normally be paid for from “Precept Money “.
Bearing all of the above in mind please submit your proposals and ideas as soon as you like.
Where possible please submit an outline plan, approximate costings, and justification for whatever the suggestion is.
This facility will be open to all for the next 4/5 weeks. Final cut-off date will be 25th September 2020
Qualifying proposals and ideas will be discussed in open session at the Public meeting.
This is an important matter for the Village so please feel free to participate.
