The subject of the decision:
This report sought approval of a greater proportion of the Section 106 funds previously identified for the delivery of a sports hall and artificial pitch at Easingwold Secondary School, to be used towards the provision of a 3g pitch, subject to the developer’s agreement. The Council had previously agreed that both facilities would be funded from the Section 106 funds.
Alternative options considered:
The reason for the decision:
The S106 off-site recreational contribution of £650,000 was required, in accordance with the terms of the S106 Agreement, to be used for the provision of a sports hall on the Easingwold Secondary School site. It was necessary to obtain the developer’s consent to vary the S106 to use part of this um £250,000, for the provision of an artificial pitch on the site. The S106 Agreement did not refer to the funds being provided for the building of a sports hall at the school and did not make reference to who operated the facility, ie the local education authority or an academy.
That Cabinet approves:-
(1) the division of the £650,000 Section 106 funds as highlighted within paragraph 1.9 of the report, subject to the developer’s agreement; and
(2) subject to recommendation (1) being agreed, that approval of a community use agreement for use of the facilities is delegated to the Chief Executive in conjunction with the Leader.
Reason Key: Expenditure > £50,000;
Wards Affected: Easingwold Ward;
