The long-running battle to furnish Arbroath with a skatepark facility achieved an important target yesterday (Tuesday) as planning approval was given.

The meeting of the development standards committee approved, subject to conditions, the planning application submitted by the Arbroath Skatepark Project Club.

It allows for a concrete skatepark with an area of 1,162 square metres to be constructed on an undefined grass area adjacent to Kerr’s Miniature Railway.

The only condition pertaining to the project is that no development is undertaken until plans for the proposed flood lighting have been submitted and agreed upon.
