A DESIGN plan have been given approval for a new community and sports hall in Hailsham and thousands of pounds have been set aside for the project by Hailsham Town Council.
Developer Taylor Wimpey has to provide a community hall and formal sports/play facilities as part of the planning deal for the Welbury Farm development. The facility is also featured in the Hailsham and Hellingly Masterplan.
Hailsham town councillors reviewed design options for the community hall and agreed on the best option at a meeting on July 13.
Some £116,000 has also been aside for the sports facility by the council which would take on responsibility for the development once it is constructed.
