Do you need community facilities?

Are you involved with a club, society or other community group that has plans or ambitions for new or improved facilities, or do you own such a facility and have aspirations for its future improvement?

If so, then Redcar and Cleveland Council wants to hear from you, so that it has all the information available to draft new planning policies on the provision of community facilities across the Borough.

A new planning document, the Communities DPD, could protect existing facilities and safeguard sites for new community facilities. The Council is also looking at ways of securing contributions towards community facilities as part of new housing developments but needs to know where the greatest needs are.

You can download a community infrastructure questionnaire from the Council's website, pick up a copy in your local library, or ask for one to be posted to you by calling 01287 650553.

The closing date for responses is 4th January 2008.

This consultation is part of the on-going consultation on the Emerging Options for the Communities DPD which was launched on the 13, November and deals with housing, open space, community facilities and environmental matters.

Responses are also invited on all the issues and options raised in the Emerging Options Report by 4 January 2008.
