D-Day for skate park

A DECISION on whether to grant planning permission for a new skate park in Henley will be made on Wednesday.

Members of South Oxfordshire District Council’s planning committee are being recommended to approve the £250,000 project.

A member of the Henley Skate Park Initiative will address councillors.

Colin Brathwaite, who chairs the group, said: “We are quietly confident.”

In a report to the committee, planning officer Tom Wyatt says that, subject to several conditions, the skate park is in keeping with the character and appearance of the site at Makins recreation ground and the surrounding area and would not harm neighbouring amenities or prejudice road safety.”
