Council agrees to submit skate park planning application
HENLEY Town Council has applied for planning permission to build a new £250,000 skate park in Makins recreation ground.
The council agreed to submit an application to South Oxfordshire District Council despite objections from two members.
If it is approved, the Henley Skate Park Initiative can begin applying for grants from Sport England and the district council. It has already raised £4,000 and the town council, which owns the land, has pledged £75,000.
A decision on the application is expected in April and it is expected to be approved.
The proposed 850sqm facility would replace the existing 500sqm skate park and a section of the car park.
