Loanhead skatepark on track

AMENDED plans for a new Midlothian skatepark have been approved by councillors.

Loanhead Community Development Association has secured support from Midlothian Council’s planning committee to develop a V-shaped facility in King George’s Field.

This means the £180,000 project is well-placed for the next stage of a funding application to the National Lottery.
