To secure Portfolio Holder approval to use Section 106 contributions held by the District Council for improvements to the Sherwood Avenue  Sports Pavilion, Newark.


AGREED that:


a)      the Section 106 contributions secured through AG1218 and held by the District Council for the maintenance, repair or enhancement of facilities at Sherwood Avenue Pavilion be paid to Newark Town Council, as owner of the building, to deliver a PV scheme to reduce Carbon emissions, to improve the energy efficiency of the building and to save future revenue costs; and


b)      the Council’s Capital Programme is increased by £17,993, financed by Section 106 AG1218 Community Facilities Contribution.

Reasons for the decision:

To allow the District Council to enable Newark Town Council to deliver facility improvements at the Sherwood Avenue Pavilion for the benefit of the local community.

Alternative options considered:

The Section 106 receipts held under this agreement have to spent on the Sherwood Avenue Pavilion in accordance with the S106 Agreement AG1218.


Therefore it is appropriate that the District Council transfers the contribution to Newark Town Council as site owner in order for the proposed works to be progressed to secure carbon emission reductions and energy efficiencies as soon as possible.  The Section 106 explicitly requires that the contribution is used for improvements to the  pavilion.
