Minutes:

The subject of the decision

 

The Parks and Open Spaces Officer submitted a report which sought member’s approval for the submission of a Stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) application for Workington Hall Park, and if successful, approval to proceed to Stage 2.

 

Councillor M Heaslip moved the recommendation; this was seconded by Councillor A Smith. The motion was unanimously agreed.

2.  Use limited council budgets to undertake specific small-scale interventions on an annual basis

3.  Do nothing and continue to maintain the park based on current management regimes

 

The reason for the decision

 

Submission of a Stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) application, and if successful, proceeding to Stage 2 submission, represented an excellent, low-risk opportunity for the Council to secure funding to develop a strategic plan for Hall Park, which would establish it as a visitor attraction of regional significance and a unique local recreational space for local people, contributing to several of the Councils strategic priorities.

 

The decision

 

Resolved

 

Approval to proceed with the submission of the Stage 1 Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) Heritage Grants application and if successful, continue through the Development Phase and submission of a Stage 2 application.
