PROPOSALS for a new indoor skate park for Portishead have been given the green light for the second time.
Planning permission was granted in October for Portishead businessmen Jason Harvey and Neil Delaney to open an indoor wheels park at unit two in Old Mill Road. A gym also obtained planning permission to open in the same unit and was successful in securing the lease.
After losing out, Jason and Neil then applied for change-of-use for unit three and permission has now been given for them to create the indoor skate facility there.
Jason said: “This is good news but we now have to agree and sign the lease before we can move forward.”
Once this is done, the warehouse will be transformed and quarter-pipes, half-pipes and a foam pit for skaters to practice intricate moves, will be installed. There will also be a skate shop, café and viewing area.
