    Town Clerk on behalf of
    Ingleby Barwick Town Council

    The land on which the Community Centre is to be built is currently in the ownership of Persimmon Homes.

    Stockton Borough Council (SBC) agreed in December 2014, to complete a title transfer of the land from Persimmon Homes, to enable a community centre to be sited at The Rings.

    The land will then be leased to Ingleby Barwick Town Council, subject to the Town Council securing planning permission and sufficient finance to build and maintain the community centre.

    Planning permission was approved for the proposed community centre on 28th August 2015.

    The Town Council has agreed and instructed the following:

    • Solicitor to undertake all aspects of legal work required
    • Quantity Surveyor to act on their behalf for the project
    • Architect to draw up the plans in detail, to compile the specification required, all of which will be incorporated in the tender document

    The project has been advertised on the 'Contracts Finder' website, as required by legislation, as well as the Town Council website, requesting 'Expressions of Interest' in the Contract Opportunity from suitably qualified contractors.

    The funding for the project will potentially be obtained from the following sources:

    • SBC - £50,000 towards the capital costs for the provision of the Youth Café (build & fixtures & fittings costs only and not running costs)
    • Ingleby Barwick Town Council
    • Loan from the Public Works Loan Board

    How will the Loan be raised? - The Town Council is looking to apply for ‘borrowing approval’ from the Government, which will enable them to take out a Loan.

    The amount of loan required is to be considered once the tender has been agreed and the overall costings for the project have been calculated.

    It is envisaged that the loan would be taken out over a 25-year period, with the repayments made through the Town Council’s annual precept.

    The Town Council has allocated funding in the budget for 2017/18, to cover any loan repayments required during this period, should the need arise.

    What is the cost to residents? - The Town Council has not had to raise the precept to cover this. The annual cost per average band D property will actually be reduced in 2017/18 by approx. 2.3%

    Further details on the financial implications of providing the Community Centre and associated works will be provided in due course.

    IBTC has created a Business Plan which will incorporate details of the tender and loan agreements as well as any other relevant details, which will be used in support of the project.

    It is hoped that the project will commence on site in early/mid 2018.

    The Town Council would like to hear residents comments on the project, as well as the proposal to apply for 'borrowing approval' from the Government.

    PUBLIC CONSULTATION

    PROPOSED COMMUNITY CENTRE, THE RINGS, INGLEBY BARWICK

    Ingleby Barwick Ward Councillors met with Stockton Borough Council (S.B.C.) Planners and Persimmon Homes on 16th November 2009 to develop a Master Plan for the remainder of Village 6, The Rings, Ingleby Barwick. Ward Councillors requested that land be identified for a possible Community Centre/Facility', as the Community Hall at Beckfields is full to capacity. S.B.C.
    Planners and Persimmon Homes both accepted this suggestion.

    Persimmon Homes have offered a site for this facility within the Sandgate development (Planning Application No. 13/2626/REM), which has now been granted planning approval by S.B.C.

    This project cannot progress without Town and Ward Councillors working together with S.B.C. and Persimmon Homes regarding the land, with the view to pursuing the building of a Community Centre which will incorporate a Youth Cafe.

    The proposed design and plans are currently being drawn up by an architect and will be finalised in the near future. A planning application will then be submitted to S.B.C. Planning Department to obtain approval.

    The financial implications of providing the Community Centre and associated works will be provided in due course.

    The Town Council would like to hear residents views on the proposal, at this initial stage and would be grateful to receive your comments.

    Please send your comments, in writing, to the Town Council using the following contact details:

    Ingleby Barwick Town Council,
    Barwick Lodge,
    Ingleby Way,
