The Parish Council has received the sum of £50,216.
The money must be spent within the next five years on village infrastructure for the benefit of the community.
The money comes from a levy imposed by B&NES Council on the new Upper Conygre development which is situated at the crossroads on the old mining site (formerly known as Wheelers Yard).
The Parish Council is responsible for decisions on how to allocate the monies. However, to ensure that a wide range of options are considered Timsbury residents are invited to submit ideas and suggestions as to how it might best be used. Submissions, which should reach the Parish Clerk before the end of the year, will relate to improving the community infrastructure in the Parish. Requests are to be supported by:
1/. A fully detailed explanation of the suggestion.
2/. The estimated cost.
3/. What other funding may be available to supplement the cost.
4/. Who will benefit
5/. The number of people who will benefit.
6/. How long the benefit is expected to last.
All ideas and suggestions will be considered by the Parish Council alongside its ongoing projects and aspirations providing they meet the qualifying criteria.
Please send submissions, before 31st December 2021 to: Angela Wilson, Parish Clerk, c/o YMCA, North Road, Timsbury. BA2 0JH.
