“(i) The Council resolves to support the reopening of Norton Skate Park as soon as possible given the importance of the asset to the community in Norton, Malton and Ryedale generally.

 

(ii) The Council resolves also to support the retention and renovation of the half pipe.

 

(iii) To aid in achieving the above, the Council resolves to make available to Norton Town Council (or a relevant community interest organisation) up to £50,000* of capital funding towards any necessary works.

 

*This maximum figure has been put forward following discussion with skate park campaigners. Ryedale District Council officers should liaise with Norton Town Council to (a) determine the precise contribution needed for the works and (b) complete appropriate financial and legal due diligence before funds are released.”

 

Advice of s.151 Officer and Monitoring Officer:

 

In order to ensure that a legal and balanced budget can be drawn up, it should be noted that as this motion requests additional funding is made available in the budget, it needs to be considered alongside the recommendations from Policy and Resources Committee and the paper at item 10c.
