We're in the money!

TWO major awards to community projects are among more than £500,000 of spending announced for St George.

 

The money - £529,00 in total – is coming from the Community Infrastructure Levy, money paid to the city council to help improve the area by developers who are building locally, and bid for by ward councillors.

 

The biggest award - £200,000 – is going to Meadow Vale Community Centre in Meadow Vale, Speedwell, to fund plans to extend the existing building by building a hall behind it. The new centre would be able to hold up to 100 people instead of the current 35.

 

Next largest is a £150,000 award to the Friends of St George Park to transform the park's lake, including the creation of a wildlife sanctuary and a wooden decking walkway.
