Let's not forget
A NEW SPORTS HALL FOR SWANAGE???
From PLANNING PURBECK'S FUTURE:
From the 19th January PDC report on Council Core Strategy - Key Issues Item 2.9:
In Swanage there is opportunity to investigate how a new sports hall could be provided for the benefit of residents.'
What do Swanageview's bloggers feel about the need for this, in light of all of the other priorities for the town? What facilities would you want to see it have?
Same as the schools situation really, it would be good to have one local.
PDC have plans to give us one - a Sports Centre that is!
Now show your knowledge, show that you have engaged with the outside world and tell me how I know it - it's available to the public - if you can be bothered to find it.
It would be only polite to give us the link. Thank you.
Funding-It seems that there is pots of money available if it fits a certain criterior. So let find a pot that fits education and a sports centre. There is lottery funding available, similar to the Keystone Project funding.
The Purbeck Heritage Committee and community partners are pleased to have been awarded £1.4 million from the Heritage Lottery Fund to promote and celebrate the nature and culture of Purbeck's landscapes.
We want the programme to be as flexible as possible, and would therefore welcome applications either to modernise or enhance sporting facilities, or provide revenue funding for any aspect of sports development, or a combination of the two.
The total funding available is £10 million of National Lottery money.
The overall aim of this investment programme is to develop projects that encourage people living in rural communities to participate and / or sustain their participation in sport, and help those with talent fulfil their potential.
We can do this !
We so need this. But is has been discussed for 30 years. Remember the exhibition at the TIC about 5 years ago. The sites were identified and the builders seemed ready to start. What happened?
All this talk about a Sports Centre for Swanage then a year on at the last STC meeting it seemed to have been forgotten about again. Thanks Mike for bringing it to the attention of the planning officer (Steve Dring).
So a secondary school and a new sports hub, it would be good to achieve some progress with both in 2011 !
