Community Cafe - New Century Park PDF 152 KB
The Local Area Manager outlined a tabled report (copy appended to minutes), relating to the construction of a new Community Café at New Century Park. Following the results of significant soil testing the foundation scheme had to be redesigned at a cost of £62,714.35. The details of this came after Fair Oak and Horton Heath Parish Council had set its precept. The Parish Council have contributed the full sum from reserves, but the sustainability elements of the project now depend on additional funding support totalling £28,750. The next BIFOHH LAC was not until 28 June 2023 and to wait for approval to progress with the scheme, would likely add further costs to the project.
That the Committee approved, in principle, the allocation of the Developers Contributions outlined in the report. This decision would be subject to formal, retrospective, approval at the next BIFOHH LAC on 28 June 2023.
The Chair thanked Councillor Ray Dean for his five years of service on the Local Area Committee as he would not be standing at the forthcoming election.
