Purpose:

To approve the allocation of Section 106 resources from DB290 - land rear of 433-463 Ripponden Road, Oldham (PA/52663) to Environmental Services for the purposes of Installation of new slide feature in Waterhead Park.

Decision:

RESOLVED - That:
The allocation of Section 106 resources for the purposes of Installation of new slide feature in Waterhead Park is approved.

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 - Do nothing: To do nothing would mean that the requirement of the S106 to use the commuted sum towards provision of public open space would not be met. Not using the S106 contribution would mean that the installation of the slide unit could not go ahead as planned.
Option 2 - To allocate the £14,130.09 to the scheme to install a new slide unit at the play area within Waterhead Park, which will improve play provision with the park.

Alternative options considered:
