Community & Medical Centre


February 2024

The Parish Council have submitted an application for One Public Estate (OPE) funding.

The need for OPE Funding – The project is currently tracking overbudget primarily due to inflationary costs on revenue and capital costs over the past few years which in addition to the rising Public Works Loan Board rates, has seen the viability of the project diminish. The Council are now seeking additional funding to try and close out these issues in order to give Councillors the confidence to proceed on the basis of the grant funding coming forwards.

This funding will provide good value for money to the project, as it will help to unlock the scheme and get it kick started through the pre-construction service agreement (PCSA). Once this work is complete, it will confirm the final value of the capital build that will be in line with the partners aspirations, that will enable construction to start on site.
