Loanhead skatepark views sought

A BID to create a skatepark in Loanhead has progressed to the second round of Big Lottery Community Spaces.

Loanhead Community Development Association is leading a group of local organisations working hard to establish the facility for young people.

Community Enterprise and Theresa Casey Consultancy have been commissioned to carry out research and consultation with the wider community to gather evidence and strengthen the funding application.

Young people have been enthusiastic participants in a detailed design consultation and initial plans have been drawn up for the skatepark.

The aim of this consultation is to seek the views of the wider community, how the skatepark will operate and how it will enhance community cohesion. All information is gathered in confidence.
