KIDSGROVE SPORTS CENTRE PLANS MOVE TO THE NEXT STAGE
Written by Hitmix News on 6 September 2020
The reopening of community sports facilities in Kidsgrove will take a huge step forward next week as Newcastle’s Cabinet is set to approve the latest refurbishment plans and funding structure.
Earlier this year, the Cabinet confirmed its support for this hugely significant project with a pledge of £5.6million from Council funds and contributions from Staffordshire County Council and Sport England.
Since then a series of detailed surveys have provided much more information on the building’s condition, allowing the cost estimates to be realistically firmed up.
The Leader of Newcastle-under-Lyme Borough Council, Simon Tagg said: “Since April, and the Council’s renewed commitment, a great deal of work has taken place to move the project on and to make sure that the centre will fit the needs of the community.
“Excellent progress has been made by all parties, which is all the more pleasing considering the Covid-19 restrictions we have been dealing with. We are now in a position to take another major step forward with the community group being involved at every phase.”
Cabinet will review the plans and the funding proposals at its meeting on 9 September.
