Plans for a new skate park are making ‘steady progress’ but Crowland youngsters should be patient.

During Monday’s meeting, parish councillors confirmed talks had started with manufacturers on selecting equipment for the skate park that would be suitable for “all ages”.

We have to make sure that it suits all ages and once we’ve got part of the equipment in place, we can add to it as we go along

Chairman, Coun David Ringham, said: “We have an avenue we want to go down and we’ve also had discussions with manufacturers about the type of equipment we want.

“But we have to make sure that it suits all ages and that once we’ve got part of the equipment in place, we can add to it as we go along.

“We’re making steady progress and moving forward with the Crowland Skate Park Group which is trying their level best to retain the town’s interest in the project.”

The Guardian revealed plans for a skate park in Crowland last month after continued efforts going back at least five years to provide more play equipment for youngsters.

Coun Bryan Alcock, parish and district councillor, said: “We’re trying to keep the skate park group informed at every stage, with the expectation of some input from them.”
