These are negotiated between the developer and the Council under the terms of Section 106, Town and Country Planning Act 1990. Developers sign a S106 agreement which is a legal document as part of their planning permission and this specifies what the money is spent on and where. For example S106 money is used to make improvements to highways, parks, public transport, schools. The funding discussed today will be for recreation and leisure facilities.

Chris Hanson From Queensbury Showing Off His Skills To The World

Chris HansonChris Hanson has won a place to represent the UK in the World Skills competition in Brazil. He has won a place after a long and very competitive two year competition. This is a massive competition for apprentices around the world and will take place in August. As a former pupil at Russell Hall school and Queensbury Upper and also played rugby for Queensbury it would be lovely if he could get the support of Queensbury our community to cheer him on. Thank you.
