Go-ahead for funding bid for urgent work at Horley pavilion
12:12pm Wednesday 16th October 2013 in Local News
Councillors in Horley have given the go-ahead for funding to be sought for “urgent” work to be carried out at the town's Innes Pavilion.
Horley Town Council discussed the urgent need to have the Innes Pavilion roof at Court Lodge replaced at its Extraordinary Full Council Meeting.
Having put the work out to tender, councillors heard the expected total cost of the project would be £150,000. In view of what the council called the pavilion roof's “poor and unsafe state,” councillors directed that borrowing approval of £85,000 should be sought from the Department for Communities and Local Government, to enable a short-term loan to be made from the Public Works Loan Board, the body which offers loans to local authorities.
Stating that the remaining amount will be funded from its reserves, the council said: “The work will ensure that the Innes Pavilion can be used as a much-needed community facility for Horley.”
