Community Area Grant

2. Amount of funding required?
£1001 - £5000

3. Are you applying on behalf of a Parish Council?

4. If yes, please state why this project cannot be funded from the Parish Precept
Landford Parish Council owns two recreation grounds the one in Landford has had minimal investment since the LPC expansion to incorporate the hamlets of Hamptworth and Nomansland due to the additional funds needed to start the project to bring the Nomansland play area up to ROSPA basic standards. The Landford Recreation ground play park gates are both in need of replacing to be self-closing gates in line with ROSPA recommendations It is essential to undertake the remedial work and gate move as soon as possible as there are currently safety issues with the play area gates. The cost of undertaking this work is significant and there is inadequate provision in the Precept to complete the work in an acceptable time-frame. Landford Parish Council can allocate 50 percent of funding for this project via precept income.

5. Project title?
Landford Recreation ground two bully gates

6. Project summary:
The childrens play area is located within a large recreation ground which also contains a number of older children play equipment items e.g. table tennis zip wire and Multi use goals a cricket pitch a pavilion and small BMX area. By increasing usage of the childrens play area via the gate move and replacement to self-closing gates we hope that it will further encourage children and families to participate in sports and social activities which will bring with it all of the health social and well-being benefits associated with active fit children.

Why can't you fund this project from your reserves:
Our Precept in 2018-19 increased from 24000 to 49000 due to the merge with the Hamlets of Nomansland and Hamptworth. Reserves should equal between 50 and 100 percent of the precept which is between 24500 and 49000. The 19628.25 carried forward from 2017-18 does not meet the minimum 50 percent figure so our reserves being planned to be built up slowly to meet this minimum figure for our enlarged Parish sustainability.

We are a small community group and do not have annual accounts or it is our first year:

13. Please tell us WHO will benefit and HOW they will benefit from your project benefit your local community?
The childrens play area in Landford is highly valued by the local community - the children love playing on the equipment and their parents or guardians enjoy the venue as an opportunity to meet and interact with their peers. However there is currently a gate from the Play area onto the vehicle and pedestrian access track. This issue was identified by the Parish Council Recreation Group and reinforced by supportive parent comments to a local Councilor. The Parish Council would like to move this bully gate to the opposite side of the play area which runs opens onto the main Recreation Ground and to replace the existing access gate as it no longer functions as a self-closing gate meaning dogs have been able to enter the area freely. Both gates being replaced will facilitate a safer community play area for the Parish children and enable the adults to also exercise in the main recreation ground area with quick access to the play area if needed.

14. How will you monitor this?
The LPC Recreation Ground Group undertake weekly inspections of the play area and two of the Councillors and the Clerk visit it regularly with their children so we will easily be able to determine when the usage of the facility improves. Moreover we will survey usage and attitude to the facility via our Facebook page.

15. Safeguarding. Please tell us about how you will protect and safeguard those involved in your project

16. If your project will continue after the Wiltshire Council funding runs out, how will you continue to fund it?
We have quotes from appropriate suppliers and will only award the contract on a fixed price basis. Therefore when we start the project we will know the final cost. We are requesting a contribution to the overall cost of the project from SWAB LPC will make up the remainder of the cost from the Precept.

17. If this application forms part of a larger project (eg. building of new village hall), please state what this project is and approximately how much the overall project will cost.
