Skate park project given final no
PLANS to create a skate park at Portishead’s Lake Grounds have been given a final no.
Members of Portishead Skatepark Project (PSP) were given a glimmer of hope when North Somerset Council was told to reconsider a decision to refuse consent for the facility to be installed on its land.
However, the councillors responsible have since said they are standing by their decision.
PSP had been granted planning permission for the skate park and the final hurdle it had to over come was permission from North Somerset Council to create it at the Lake Grounds.
At a meeting of the council’s community and corporate organisation policy and scrutiny panel on January 6, a vote was passed to ask the authority’s executive members Tony Lake and Peter Bryant, and director of finance and resources, Phil Hall, to reconsider their decision to refuse permission for this to happen.

PSP members have said they will now help in a search for a new site but if one cannot be found within three months, the project will be disbanded.
