We're pleased to announce that following a period of consultation with members of the Old Sarum Skatepark Project Group who assisted with the design and after reviewing various contractors, the Parish Council have appointed Gravity to construct the new skatepark at Old Sarum. Work started on 28th June and should take approximately 6-8 weeks to complete.
As well as skateboarding, the park has been designed for use by other disciplines including scooters, BMX and rollerskating. The skatepark will be located on land owned by the Parish Council at the end of the swales in Old Sarum.
Our thanks also to members of the Old Sarum Skatepark Project Group for their support with fundraising to help make this happen.

Tucked away in a corner of Laverstock is Whitebridge Spinney boardwalk, a surprising hidden gem which runs alongside the banks of the River Bourne.

Planning Applications

Councillors, but may occasionally be referred to the whole Council. Full details may be viewed on the Wiltshire Council website.
The RESPONSE is the view of the Parish Council and will be considered, along with other consultations, by Wiltshire Council, who will make the decision.
