IT is "payback" time for the people of Pilton and Bradiford as they get to have a say on where council money will be spent.Money from contributions by developers, as part of the conditions of their planning permission, has been set aside to be used on community projects in the area.Residents are invited to an open day at Pilton Parish Rooms on Saturday, February 21 between 10am-4pm, where they can put forward their views and ideas to their local councillors.The information collected at the event organised by North Devon Council will be used to create a list of improvements, which could include anything from street additions such as benches to green spaces and allotments, or ways to enhance local heritage. "This is the start of the payback time for Pilton and Bradiford residents," said local ward member Councillor Brian Greenslade."The ward has received more than its fair share of development and on the back of these developments substantial developer contributions have been won."Councillor Mair Manuel, also a Pilton ward member, added: "I look forward to meeting as many residents as possible at the event in the parish rooms and hearing their views. "It is vitally important the whole community has the opportunity to influence decisions which will shape Pilton and Bradiford in the future."Anyone who is unable to attend but wishes to put their views and ideas forward can contact Community Development, at North Devon Council on (01271) 388862 or email: communitydevelopment@northdevon.gov.uk.
