Loanhead skate plans on a roll

PLANS to create a skatepark in Loanhead have reached a crucial stage.

Loanhead Community Development Association has submitted stage two documentation to the Big Lottery, and proposals for a facility in King George’s Field in Mayburn Avenue are with Midlothian Council planners.

A detailed report by Community Enterprise and the Theresa Casey Consultancy has outlined the project’s progress and endorsed local backing for the £180,000 scheme.
