The subject of the decision:
This report recommended that elements of Phase 2 of the Sowerby Sports Village development, as outlined in the 7 November 2017 Cabinet report, were brought forward for completion earlier than originally planned. The report also requested that additional ‘seed funding’ was provided to local organisations to help improve sports facilities in the Sowerby area.
Alternative options considered:
The reason for the decision:
The sports village was a key component part of the Sowerby Gateway scheme in enhancing the quality of lives of the residents of the locality, as well as within the wider Thirsk area. This project would make a significant contribution to the ‘Enhancing Health and Wellbeing’ and ‘Providing a Special Place to Live’ priorities and had been identified as a key project in the Council Plan 2015-19.
(2) the pitch works included within Phase 2 be delivered under a contract that has been awarded through the Football Association procurement framework; and
(3) inclusion of Phase 2 of Sowerby Sports Village, as highlighted in paragraph 4.2 of the report, in the capital programme to meet costs should the developer contribution thresholds not be met in a timely fashion.
Reason Key: Expenditure > £50,000;
Wards Affected: Sowerby and Topcliffe Ward;
