Loanhead skate plans progress

PLANS to create a community skatepark in Loanhead have been given a boost.

Loanhead Community Development Association’s proposals have qualified for Stage Two in the Big Lottery Community Spaces Scotland application process.

Group chairman Gail Prince said: “This is great news for the LCDA community network organisation. Those involved are very excited about taking the skatepark project forward, and are working together to ensure the strongest application possible can be submitted later this year. In addition, we are delighted to have been successful in our application for Development Fund funding from the Big Lottery, which will contribute towards designs costs and carrying out a full community consultation regarding the project.”
