Tadley residents to decide whether youth facility loan should be taken out

Basingstoke Gazette: Tadley residents to decide whether youth facility loan should be taken out Tadley residents to decide whether youth facility loan should be taken out

OVER the next few weeks all Tadley residents who are on the electoral register will be receiving a ballot paper through the post, asking if they want the town council to borrow £250,000 to contribute towards the capital costs of building of a youth facility at Tadley Community Centre.

The council would borrow the money from the Public Loans Board and pay it back over a period of 15 years by raising the council tax.

The total cost to a band D household over the course of the loan would be about £40, approximately £3.63 a year.

Chair of the council Cllr David Leeks said: "This is democracy in action, residents of Tadley have an opportunity here to vote on what they think the Town Council should do.”
