More green for Green Moor Cricket Club with £5,000 of funding

Green Moor Cricket Club is set to benefit from £5,000 of S106 money, secured by Barnsley Council from a local developer.

The funding will contribute towards groundworks needed to level the site, helping to create a better playing surface. Once completed the works will create a safer site and see all wickets situated on one level.

Cllr Roy Miller, Cabinet Spokesperson for Place, said: “Green Moor is a well-established club that is reliant on volunteers.

“The funding is great news for the club as it will make sure this valued local facility can continue. The site improvements will help to attract new members and enable more people to get involved in cricket in 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.
