To receive a verbal update on this project by Cllr D Butterfield.
The Committee received a verbal update from Cllr Butterfield on the Leys Skate park upgrade.
This project had been branded as ‘Ramp up the Leys’ and the community group formed to spearhead fundraising were keen to progress. There were several grant pots available, as well as the funds earmarked by the Town Council, but a design and specification would be needed before the tender process began and these could be applied for.
1. That the report be noted; and
2. That Officers provide project management details and specification for the previous Skatepark refurbishment; and
3. That the Vice Chair, Cllr D Butterfield holds meetings with the ‘Ramp Up the Leys’ group and the Town Clerk to understand the fundraising procedures, in line with the Council’s financial regulations, and potential timeline around the project.
