Other Potential Projects

  • MUGA replacement – estimated £50-80k – is on Recreation’s long list
  • Bredfield Road Pedestrian improvements – cost tbc – could apply for District CIL
  • Solar panels for 17 Riduna Park – cost c.£6-10k – this is currently on hold and could be part funded by grants. It cannot be funded using CIL.
  • Installation for EV charging points – this could be partially funded through grants
  • At Budget Working Group the fete committee asked if £1.5k of CIL could be earmarked to purchase 2-3 heavy duty gazebos for next year’s fete.
  • Yarmouth Road Speed Repeater Roundels (see item MPC(22)96.07)
  • Pavilion de-fib – could be part funded through grants and the bequest

Recommendations

Members are asked to:

  • Note and comment on the report
  • Agree which projects should be prioritised and allocated funding for the remainder of 2022/23 and for 2023/24.
  • Agree if £1.5k of CIL should be earmarked to purchase gazebos for the 2023 Fete.
