We plan to replace the pavilion at the Hethersett Memorial Playing Field by providing:
- a meeting/recreation room, which can be hired out separately, with an adjacent kitchen
- up to date changing rooms, which can be safely used by all ages and genders using the MPF
- external facilities including toilets, covered seating and a water fountain storage, both internal and external
To ensure that this project can be completed the Parish Council may need to approach the Public Works Loan Board (PWLB) for a long-term loan at a very low rate of interest. This will only be as a last resort and we will only borrow what we need. If the PC does have to go to the PWLB the money will have to be paid back from future council tax. To show that the PC can repay any loan, we have had to put an amount of money in this year’s precept. If it is not used for this project, then it will be used to pay for normal Parish expenditure.
The Parish Council has got as far as having plans drawn up, but before we go any further, we would like to learn your views. Could you please look at the plans, make any comments and answer the questions on the survey?
