The Council are receiving in late 2019, a figure for community infrastructure improvements. Infrastructure is defined in Town and Country Planning Act 2008, but there are broadly in three categories:
- Social infrastructure:
- art and culture, sports halls, education, health, social care, emergency services, community centres or village halls
- Physical infrastructure:
- pavements, cycleways, flood defences, highways, transport links
- Green infrastructure:
- play areas, public open space, woodlands
The sum is approximately £6,000 to use. We invited suggestions from the parish for how to spend this – or a proportion of this – and this is now going to a parish-wide vote.
