Council confirms plans to help fund new community facilities

South Cambridgeshire District Council has confirmed more than £14.8m in funding for new sports and community facilities for Northstowe residents.

Councillors unanimously agreed proposals to help fund the new Northstowe Sports Pavilion, awarding £1.53m to the project which will provide changing facilities for teams and officials, a multi-use club room and catering facilities.

A further £6.5m will go towards a multi-use Community Centre, while £2m will help fund a second sports pavilion. The council will also contribute £4.82m towards the new Civic Hub.

The money to pay for the investment into Northstowe will all come from capital receipts, aside from a contribution of £300,000 from the Renewable Energy Reserve towards the phase one Sports Pavilion.

“This is a real milestone for Northstowe residents and shows how committed we are to our growing new community. New towns and their facilities don’t appear immediately but take careful planning and a lot of hard work to bring forwards. We can now however be confident that there is now a funded plan in place to deliver these new buildings which Northstowe residents need and deserve,” said Cllr Sarah Cheung Johnson, a district councillor for Northstowe.
