STREET lighting, footpaths and a new play area are among a series of projects set to benefit from nearly £31,000 of funding from Wychavon District Council.

At a meeting on June 26, the Communities and Funding Advisory Panel approved the New Homes Bonus funding which will go to seven parish councils and one parish meeting in the Wychavon district.

The panel is also recommending a further £64,600 of funding for three other projects to the next Executive Board meeting.

Among those being handed a cash boost is South Littleton Parish Council which will be given £3,237 for play equipment at Littleton Recreation Ground and Long Lartin playground.

Birlingham Parish Council has been handed £1,372 for the removal and relocation of the existing millennium bench and to produce a booklet to mark the 75th anniversary of the Second World War.

Five street lights will be replaced with modern LED lights at various locations after Charlton Parish Council received £3,569 from the cash pot.

Coun Audrey Steel, chairman of the Wychavon Communities and Funding Advisory Panel, said: “It is brilliant to see such varied projects receive the funding they need to benefit the community and residents of all ages.

“We are proud to be able to share New Homes Bonus with parishes and we can’t wait to see the end results.”
