Multi sports centre could cost up to £300,000

Have your say

A NEW multi-sports centre for Sutton Bridge could cost up to £300,000, parish councillors heard.

Parish councillor Robert Middleton is part of a team looking at siting a new centre in the area of the sports pavilion and Methodist Church.

At Tuesday’s parish council meeting he said three quotes have been received – ranging from £234,000 to £300,000.

At a previous meeting, Coun Middleton said he hoped the cost could be met from Section 106 money donated to the village when the power station was built.

He said on Tuesday he had submitted a freedom of information (FOI) request to South Holland District Council to find out how much funding may be available.

Later in the meeting the parish council decided to submit its own FOI request to establish how much money is left in the fund.
