An indoor skate park could open at an empty industrial unit in Mayfield, bringing jobs and opportunities for local young people.
Transgression Park has applied for planning permission to open a facility at Mayfield Industrial Estate. The social enterprise is currently based at Peffermill Industrial Estate in Edinburgh.
Their director Ken Smith is excited about the plans.
He said: “Obviously we are optimistic about this application and if it gets the green light it will be totally amazing.
“The site is a lot bigger than the place we are in and would give us the opportunity to do a lot more.
“We have always been on the look out for somewhere else. Mayfield came up, it’s a great location, near the bypass and with good transport links. And there is a lot of local demand out there.”
