Soham is set to get £542,000 from East Cambs District Council to help with the refurbishment of the Walter Gidney Pavilion.
A report setting out the terms of the funding – using section 106 (community benefits) cash held by the council- is to go to a committee on June 28.
“The money can only be used for community infrastructure and public open space improvements for the benefits of the town of Soham,” says Emma Grima, commercial director.
“The town council is in the final stages of progressing with their ambition to refurbish the pavilion and will be making an application to the district council for use of the contributions.”
Ms Grima will tell councillors that officers have been working with the town council to assess the funding requirements “to enable this ambition to be realised and are satisfied”.
