Thank-you to those who took part in our online survey to gauge your support and views in seeking a loan for £400,000 from the Public Works Loan Board in support of a contribution toward the redevelopment of the Town Pavilion at Wynhill; which was granted planning permission earlier this year. The redevelopment cost has been estimated at £600,000 with funding being sought via other grant funding applications.
There were 355 survey responders, of which 340 responses were from residents, which is less than 4% of Bingham’s population, the remaining 15 responders were from neighbouring villages. Of the 340 responses, 67% (227) supported the loan with just less than half (109) who supported the loan submitting a comment. Of the 113 who did not support, again just less than half (58) submitted a comment.
The Town Council resolved at its extra-ordinary meeting on Tuesday 18 August 2020 to proceed with the loan application and to continue to work in partnership with Bingham Rugby Club to help facilitate the plans to deliver an enhanced community hub and sporting facilities which will include:
a doubling of the community space
single level disabled access
a separate meeting / learning room including added audio visual facilities
enhanced kitchen facilities
improved sporting facilities to enable female, male & mixed ability participation
ecology and tree planting plans to improve biodiversity
parking for circa 86 cars including provision for disabled spaces and electric charging points
The Town Council will be shortly be setting up a dedicated page on the website to keep everyone informed of progress and to answer any questions raised through the survey.
