Greenham Parish Council will not have to pay back a grant of more than £420,000 for its control tower refurbishment after the provider said it was “satisfied” with the project’s status.
A letter from Social Investment Business (SIB), which gave out the grant, confirmed that the four questions it had asked of the council had now been answered.
These related a plan of how the council intended to finance the remainder of the project, and a breakdown of what work was still required.
Had the SIB not been satisfied, it could have meant the council having to repay some or all of the grant.
In the letter, Deborah Smart, the SIB’s head of programmes, said: “I am happy to confirm that the conditions I set out in my letter of March 13, 2017 have been met.
“[The council] will continue to provide us with information and updates regarding the progress of the project until such time as the building is complete and open to the public, as per the terms and conditions of the original grant agreement.”
David Fowler, clerk of the parish council, said: “I met with the SIB last week to address the four conditions set out in their letter.
“As such, the deadline of June 13 has been met and we are now in a process of routine project oversight.
“I expect to keep the SIB updated regarding progression of the project.”
