Skate park delayed

THE construction of a skate park in Sonning Common has been delayed again.

The village's skate park committee has resubmitted plans for the £100,000 amenity to South Oxfordshire District Council after making minor changes to the layout.

Carole Lewis, who chairs the committee, said: "It's very frustrating. We are grinding along at a snail's pace."

The 45m by 30m skate park will be built in the south-east corner of Bishopswood Sports Ground, which is currently owned by Rotherfield United Football Club.

The transfer of the land from the club to the parish council has been agreed.

The skate park will be built by Bristol company Wheelscape.
