S106 money Presentation Day

Saturday 14 March 2020 at 10.00 am to 4.00 pm at The Pavilion

Hanborough Parish Council would like to invite all residents of the parish to a presentation of possible options as to how we, as the villages of Long Hanborough and Church Hanborough, spend our allocation of S106 money.  

Section 106 money is money given by developers to the community to lessen the strain on our infrastructure from the impact of new developments. The three large housing developments in our community will therefore generate S106 money, some of which is set aside for provision of recreation facilities. 

At the presentation there will be laid out some ideas the parish council have and how they have arrived at these ideas. We would very much value your thoughts on these and we also want to know your own thoughts on how this money could be best spent to benefit our community.

This is a great opportunity for the parish to enhance its recreational facilities and this is your chance to have an impact on what direction that takes.

We look forward to seeing you.

Use of Section 106 Recreation Funding

As explained in last August’s Hanborough Herald, about £550,000 of Section 106 funding for recreation will become available to the parish over the next few years. Hanborough Parish Council (HPC) proposes to split this money between one large infrastructure project, in the shape of a new community building, and a number of relatively minor projects, which will be taken forward by community groups (we expect bids from Hanborough Playing Fields Association, the Community Association, the Bowls Club and perhaps one or two others – there is an application form on HPC’s website, with criteria for how these bids will be assessed).

HPC’s reasons for putting a large proportion of the Section 106 money, £450,000, towards a new building will be obvious to many residents: first, depending on the fabric of existing buildings, refurbishment alone cannot take us far enough towards being able to meet future demands; and secondly, a new building has the advantage that it can be designed from scratch, without having to compromise because of what is already in place. Current provision in the parish works brilliantly to serve our existing community, but we shall need to provide more (and different) space for our future community.   

Hanborough’s rapid growth in population will not just bring a 33% increase in the volume of residents wanting to use recreational facilities: an influx of so many people in the space of a few years will present new challenges to our community’s cohesion, requiring more diverse provision to address residents’ needs and priorities. Many more children than is currently the case will have to go to schools elsewhere and many incoming adults will have no social connections. 

What can we do to foster a sense of belonging? HPC believes that a new community building could be part of the answer. Perhaps it could have drop-in times for various age or interest groups, as well as designated activity times? Which functions would you like it to perform: social, educational, exercise, sports (other than those already provided for), arts, entertainment? Do you have an opinion on what its main emphasis should be? Let us know in writing, then HPC will convene a public meeting to discuss ideas and identify priorities.
