Taylor Wimpey

A new way of compensating communities for the development they have has come into operation
Called the New Homes Bonus, it is paid by central government to the planning authority who approve the development who then pay a proportion to the parish where the physical development takes place
Earlier this month Tarvin Parish Council received the sum of £3,518 for the level of housing growth in the Parish for the period October 2010 to October 2012. This sum is 20% of the amount allocated to Cheshire West and Chester Council.
The Parish will receive a number of payments of this nature as further housing development takes place. The Taylor Wimpey estate will generate a significant amount as the houses are completed and occupied. The Parish Council will also benefit from having more ratepayers in the area.
It is a pleasant job to have to decide exactly what to do with a windfall. At the Parish Council meeting on Monday evening it was agreed that the money should be spent on a specific item or project that would directly, and even visibly, bring benefit to residents. As the final details of the 2104/15 budget have not yet been finalized this decision was deferred until the New Year.

There may be plenty of ideas in the Parish and residents are invited to contact a Councillor or the Parish Clerk to let them know their suggestions. Telephone 01829 741075 or email Mike on Miketarvinparish@aol.com
