Decision details

Transfer of Section 106 Community facility and Off-site Sports contributions to Clipstone Miners Welfare Trust (CMWT)

Decision Maker: Chief Executive

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Officers have been working with a number of organisations in Clipstone over several    years to improve the community and sporting facilities of the village. This has been to address the impact of additional residential development, principally at Cavendish Park in the north of the village. To that end the District Council has secured Section 106 contributions from the various developers of Cavendish Park to improve and expand Community Facilities and outdoor sports facilities in the village, an agenda which is now matched by the raised ambitions to provide bigger and better facilities of the Clipstone Miners Welfare Trust (CMWT).

Reasons for the decision:

To approve the recommendation to allow the CMWT to continue with plans to deliver a sports and community hub. The facilities will enhance the quantum and quality of sports and community uses, meeting a range of Community Plan objectives linked to regeneration, community infrastructure, and health and well-being outcomes.


Alternative options considered:

There are limited other alternatives within the village available at the current time to accommodate sports and community facilities funds. The only alternative therefore would be to return the S106 receipts to the developer, which would mean the community missing the opportunity of enhanced community facilities and sports provision.
