East Woodhay Society Newsletter for April 2016
East Woodhay Parish Council (EWPC) has asked the East Woodhay Society (EWS) and other organisations to collect local views on how the Section 106 monies resulting from the the Harwood Paddock development and listed below should be spent.
As part of this exercise the EWS will send out a survey tonight to all its members and other organisations to try and ascertain what residents would like.
Section 106 agreements are drawn up when it is considered that a development will have negative impacts on the local area that cannot be mitigated by means of conditions attached to the planning permission. For example, a new residential development can place additional pressure on the social, physical and economic infrastructure which already exists in the surrounding area.
Planning obligations aim to offset the extra pressure created by new development with improvements to local infrastructure and facilities ensure that wherever possible a development makes a positive contribution to the local area and community.
Project Amount Who has a say
Public Art £10,000 EWPC
Community Facilities £92,828 EWPC & Community
Open Spaces (Informal space) £22,101 EWPC & Community
Playing Fields (Formal space) £37,884 EWPC & Community
Allotments £9,580 EWPC & Community
This short survey is an opportunity for you to influence the spending of this money on the development of our community. Please complete as soon as you can, because we would like to present our early findings at the EWPC Annual Meeting on the 19th April.
