Construction of £100,000 skate park delayed

THE construction of a skate park in Sonning Common will not start until next year, a councillor has said.

The Sonning Common skate park committee had hoped construction of the £100,000 facility would start before the end of the year. But at a meeting of Sonning Common Parish Council on Monday, Carole Lewis, who chairs the committee, said building work will not start until “the new year”.

The committee is waiting for Rotherfield United Football Club to sign paperwork which will hand over the ownership of part of Bishopswood Sports Ground to the parish council.

The 45m by 30m skate park will be built in the south-east corner.
