HONITON: Council committed to sport and play projects

Thursday, 03 April 2014

Honiton town councillors are working with planning experts at East Devon District Council to improve sports and play facilities in the town, and they have now shortlisted six project proposals for consideration.
A total of £50,000 has been made available to the council, and last year members of the public were asked to submit their proposals for projects.
Following the consultation, councillors are now moving towards making a decision on where the funding could be spent.
At the recent annual town meeting, the Mayor of Honiton, Councillor David Foster, said the council was “committed” to putting the money to good use.
He said: “The town council has been working to improve our community and the lives of those who live in it by improving the facilities in our open spaces and our sports and play areas.
“We are currently working with EDDC in determining suitable projects for both Sports and Play from Section 106 funding. After members of the public submitted their proposals we are now down to the final six.”
Local schools have been contacted for their feedback on where the money could be spent, and Councillor Foster said a ‘zip-wire’ had been a popular suggestion among children.
If the cost of the projects exceeds the amount available, the public will be asked to vote on which projects they would like to support.
