CIL Monies confirmed for new Community Centre

The Trustees of Hesketh Bank Community Centre are celebrating after West Lancs Borough Council confirmed £100,000 funding towards their new building.

Since 2010 the Council have collected Community Infrastructure Levy (CIL) monies from new developments, which must be used to support infrastructure schemes in the borough, from which they have awarded the funding.  The bid from Hesketh Bank Community Centre was one of three that were shortlisted across West Lancashire and was unanimously voted for by Borough Councillors at their meeting on 14th January.

Steve Kirby, Chair of Hesketh Bank Community Centre, said “This is the result of very hard work on behalf of our small committee of just six volunteers, so I would like to thank them and all our supporters for getting behind our redevelopment project.   This is a major step towards our target of having a new Community Centre by June 2020”.
