Decision details

Approval of Budget Increase for Wigan Lane Archery Facility

Decision Maker: Council

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


The Executive Member (Planning and Development), Councillor Alistair Morwood, presented the confidential report of the Director of Commercial Services. 


The report requested additional budget to implement the development scheme at Wigan Lane Playing Field and to award the contract.


Following receipt of tenders the value of the whole site works including pitch drainage and levelling led to an Executive Cabinet decision in June 2022 to allocate a further amount to be funded from CIL.  The increased costs were primarily due to the current volatility in the construction industry.


Councillor Sam Chapman queried how many ‘Chorley Bowmen’ there were and how many were residents of the Borough.  This information would be confirmed following the meeting. 


The Executive Member (Planning and Development), Councillor Alistair Morwood and the Executive Leader, Councillor Alistair Bradley seconded and it was Resolved (unanimously)

1.     Approval to increase the budget for Wigan Lane.

2.     Approval to award the contract for the construction of Wigan Lane Archery Facility to Wade Group.
