Youth Grant Funding

The Board considered one application for funding from the Youth Funding budget for 2018/19, as detailed in the report.

 

The representatives for the application were invited to speak on the project and to answer questions. The main points raised included that the project had been started three years ago, with work to identify a suitable site for the pitch. This had ended with a preferred scheme at Sarum Academy, which would provide use across southern Wiltshire.

 

The Football foundation would be the main funder, the total project cost would be £700k to construct. There was a 4 phase process. A feasibility study was required prior to the application being submitted.

 

This grant would help to make this project a reality. The application had also been put forward to Salisbury and South West Area Boards.

 

The Salisbury City Council would come into this at a later phase.

 

Questions were asked, these included:

 

·         Cllr McLennan - In my discussions with the applicants, it was explained that the Salisbury area could get 2 pitches. L&F sports club was keen to be put forward as the other areas for a pitch and there was the prospect of Longhedge being a site also. We should wait for a similar application from L&F sports club, in grounds of a local club. The school’s opposite would have good use of that pitch. Answer: The project at L&F was one we are working with the FA on, but there was no current funding on the table to move that forward at the moment. Sarum academy has business plans in place and funding in place.

·         Cllr Clewer - We have a small amount of money to put in to projects for children, I am not sure this was the right thing for our children.

·         Chris Hall – I am appalled that WC is putting this through. This should be funded by WC, not have them apply for a grant to request the funding.

 

·         Sarum academy is open until 10pm every night serving the community, this is something for use by the families in the community not for the school.

 

·         This is not really what our youth money was intended for, we are here to support the youth division in our communities, this would not be a logical use of our limited resources.

 

Decision

The Southern Wiltshire Area Board refused the bid for funding from Wiltshire Council for a Third-Generation artificial turf pitch in the Salisbury area.

Reason

The Board felt that it would not be an appropriate use of the limited youth funding resources available to the Board.
