'‘Previously, tenants such as The Skatehouse were relocated to a new purpose-built venue in Newhaven and a £200k skate park was opened on the neighbouring Malling Fields’. The Newhaven bit is wholly untrue – no one has relocated to a purpose-built venue in Newhaven – and the outdoor skate park revamp at Malling Fields has nothing whatsoever to do with NSQ – it was funded by Section 106 contributions from other developments.'

Section 106, as it used to be called, is a tax put on most development to benefit local communities, sometimes roads but can be used for things like skate parks. The tax spend is the responsibility of LDC so yes the press release is right because LDC chooses where this money is spent.

Skater2, so have the North Street Quarter developers made a Section 160 payment or contribution before they've started the development? How is the statement 'funded by Section 106 contributions from other developments' incorrect?
