Millhouse Green Bowling Club is set to benefit from £3,000 of S106 money, secured by Barnsley Council from a local developer.
The funding will be used to improve the sites footpaths and spectator facility, allowing a greater number of people to access the club. Work is due to start on the improvements in October.
Cllr Roy Miller, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place, said: “It’s great to see S106 money being spent in such a positive way.
“The council is working hard to improve opportunities for residents to increase their participation in sports and physical activity.
“The improvements will help to enhance the club and provide long term sustainability of a much-used community asset within the local area.”
Section 106 funding is money that developers of larger sites pay to the council to reduce the impact of the development. Developers sign an S106 agreement as part of their planning permission. This is a legal document that specifies what the money is spent on and where.
The money can be spent on projects such as improving community facilities, providing affordable housing and improving landscaping.
