A NEW youth centre in Colden Common will have to seek alternative funding after withdrawing a grant application from the parish council.

An application was made by the Colden Common Youth Centre Charity for £2,023 to pay for planning fees.

It is hoped that a new £950,000 youth centre will be built on the same site as Colden Common Primary School. But some councillors raised issue with agreeing to help fund the project prior to the planning application being approved.

Despite several councillors voicing support for the project, Cllr Paul Bryant said: “We could be predetermining this planning application if we fund this grant application.

“I feel that’s inappropriate, to be frank.”

Councillors ruled that the funds would have to be found elsewhere.
