Village Hall Repairs & Funding

Village Hall Repairs & Funding

Village Hall Repairs & Funding.

Back in June during some works at the hall it came to light that some areas of the flooring throughout the building were failing so Council decided that for safety reasons, a full building condition survey should be undertaken, while closed due to the pandemic.

This survey listed all the items needing attention in and around the building, this included drainage issues around the hall that had forced damp inside and damaged the underflooring and caused the joists to deteriorate, improvements are needed to a fire door, fire alarm system, an electrical upgrade, redecorating and internal improvements, resurfacing the car park and Council decided to include a new EV charging point. More »

The repairs are extensive and costly and Council have taken the decision to apply to the Secretary of State for a Public Works Loan Board loan for £65,000 to cover the costs of the repairs to this vital village resource and the annual payments will be made from the income from the precept (this is the part of the Council Tax payment that is given to us from the District Council)

We know that residents have had a very hard year both emotionally and financially and we would like to confirm THERE WILL BE NO INCREASE IN THE AMOUNT OF THE PRECEPT WE REQUEST FROM THE DISTRICT COUNCIL FOR THE NEXT FINANCIAL YEAR and due to the changes in the tax base rate this year there is a 1% decrease shown on the figures which is 81p reduction for band D household from £77.63 to £76.82.

We hope that the improvements for the hall will give this public facility longevity, improved facilities for all the groups that use it, improve infrastructure and asset value for the village.

We hope all the repairs are sorted by Easter and life may be able to get back to the new normal. » Less
