There are projects going on in other parishes and towns throughout the district to spend sports money and play money that's available. All of this funding has come from new homes created in that town or parish, called section 106 agreements. 

We always work with the relevant town or parish council on projects to spend the money. 

East Budleigh with Bicton

Ideas were collected in from the community on how £3,450 of section 106 sports funding (developers money) should be spent. Their proposals then went out to the community vote. 

132 residents voted on the two eligible, affordable and possible proposals. The winning idea was for an outdoor table tennis table at a cost of £2,500. This project was carried out by the Village Hall Committee and the outdoor table tennis table is now in place. 

Bishops Clyst 

Ideas were collected in from the community on how £7,000 of section 106 funding (developers money) should be spent. Their proposals then went out to the community vote.

Well publicised voting events were held for residents, the most popular project was for an outdoor gym. 

Several play companies submitted their designs for an outdoor gym. Residents voted for the design they wanted and this has now been installed in the recreation field.

Newton Poppleford

Ideas were collected in from the community on how £3,450 of section 106 sports funding should be spent. Their proposals then went out to the community vote. 

The winning idea was for safety netting at the cricket field. This has now been erected by the parish council.

Rockbeare 

Ideas were collected in from the community on how £8,000 of section 106 sports funding should be spent. We are currently working through the proposals to see which are eligible, affordable and possible. Once we have the final list residents will get to vote for their favourite projects, the most popular will happen.

Clyst Honiton 

Ideas were collected in from the community on how £3,450 of section 106 sports funding should be spent. Their proposals then went out to the community vote. 

The winning idea was for a sports wall which would be a football goal and a basketball net combined. This was installed in 2015.

Axmouth

Ideas were collected in from the community on how £3,450 of Section 106 sports funding should be spent. There were only two eligible, affordable and possible projects submitted. Both of these projects were from the football club and had a combined cost of less than £3,450 so will both be funded.
