Berrynarbor to benefit from funding for community facilities
Posted on: 3 February 2020
|At a meeting of North Devon Council’s Strategy and Resources Committee on 3 February, councillors agreed to allocate over £21,000 of S106* funding for Berrynarbor. The funding will go towards improvements to community spaces in the village.|
Manor Hall will benefit from new windows and guttering which will further insulate the hall and lead to a warmer, improved space for the community to gather in. The play area will have old equipment replaced and additional new play apparatus will be installed.
The recreation field has been identified as an area which will benefit from new play equipment to encourage children and families to get outdoors, enjoy the natural surroundings and exercise.
*Section 106 (S106) is money paid to the council by developers as part of the planning conditions of planning applications. The money can only be used for certain things, but is used primarily for public open space projects.
