THE views of Belton villagers on a new £460,000 sports pavilion could be sought once again at a public meeting.
Belton Parish Council is expecting to hear whether it has succeeded in getting grants from the Football Foundation and recycling organisation WREN for the pavilion on New Road playing field in mid-December.
If the applications for £300,000 are granted, a four-page booklet will be distributed to parishioners detailing the plans and the public meeting, which could take place in January.
Parish council chairman Malcolm Scott told a meeting last Thursday he wanted residents to know what was being planned and to be able to say whether they agreed or disagreed with the plans.
He said if the councillors did not want a public meeting then the leaflet would have to give all the details of the proposals as the public had a right to know.
Mr Scott said: “We are effectively signing a 20-year mortgage on the village's behalf. I would like the facts put down on what the parish council is proposing so people can agree or disagree with it.”

be able to play their home games at the playing field, but this is dependent on the council securing extra land for the pitch and may
