Our provisional costings for a hall large enough to hold 3 full size Badminton courts OR a full size 5-a-side pitch OR a full size Basketball court is £550,000-£600,000. This would include changing rooms , showers, equipment storage and environmentally friendly heating/lighting.
The bulk of this money would be provided by the developers who have already been granted planning permission for the 'cabbage patch' and other building sites within Lower Broadheath parish boundaries.
Additional grants would be sought from grant bodies such as Sport England and Biffa.
There is NO anticipated cost to the council tax payers in Lower Broadheath.
The Sports Hall would be managed by the Village Hall Management team who have established the current hall as a self-funded and popular venue. This would ensure that LOCAL, LOWER BROADHEATH PEOPLE, manage the new hall for the benefit of residents.As a result there would be no MANAGEMENT overhead costs.
Experience shows that establishing CLUBS to use the facilities provides a strong financial basis, in conjunction with anticipated revenue from a Primary School use term time agreement.
