Carr Lane Rec

How are we going to get our playground back? asked an angry Richard Hands.

Because of the crazy system of funding such projects there is a real danger that there will be no money for the scheme.

Richard explained:

Money coming from the developer who had planning permission to develop the land behind the Thomas Moore site was earmarked for funding the new play facilities in Carr Lane.
Now we find that because the scheme has not gone ahead there is no
money for this scheme'

All this shenanigans has been inflicted on becomes of the shambles of local government funding. The Labour Party has been in government for 8years and have done nothing to sort the situation. It is important that local schemes are not dependent on the lottery of whether a developer can find a bank to lend them money..
