Whenever there is a large development in a village the builder is required to pay a levy to the District Council, to help provide amenities in the area. Part of this levy goes in to a ‘pot’ for Sports provision and part in to a ‘pot’ for Play provision.
Due to the development at Street Farm, the ‘Play’ and ‘Sport’ pots for Tunstall have recently been added to and combined they now hold over £30,000. This is an awful lot of money and Tunstall Parish Council want to ensure it is spent in the most appropriate way. There is no rush to spend it, so we want to take our time and hold a full consultation with Tunstall Residents. In addition, this money can be added to through other funding channels available to us, so potentially either a large project or several smaller ones could be considered.
Please send your ideas to the Parish Council at firstname.lastname@example.org or call Judi on 01394 411405 who will record them.
Possible projects may include: improved play equipment at the Play Park, A Multi Use Games Area (a hard sports court fenced in), improvements for existing facilities, alterations to the Community Centre, Adult Gym Equipment….the options are endless but which ever ones we choose to progress we will need permission from the District Council to use the funds for that purpose.
