This comment is misleading and as someone who was at the Area Board and spoke to the Councillors present I do not believe this was the case.The grant was awarded because a 'tick box exercise' on funding criteria was done and a village hall review project ticked this box. Furthermore I was told Councillors were under pressure to spend this money locally on projects as it was the end of the financial year and otherwise those funds may be lost ('use it or lose it'). The site was not specified on the grant application and the Councillors were not saying they were supportive in any way of building on the green field on Park Lane.
