A SKATE and mini wheel park could be built in a South Oxfordshire village, but some residents are still concerned the park will be noisy.

The plan has been proposed for the Recreation Field in Cholsey near Wallingford, aiming to give youngsters a space to be active and socialise.

A reserved matters application has been submitted for details of the appearance, landscaping, layout and scale and a decision is set to be made by February, 12 2021.

Resident Rory Cofman-Andrews who lives on The Forty commented on the application with noise concerns.

He said: “Having been a skater in my youth, I am fully aware of the noises that come with skateparks, namely music played on phones/speakers and the constant clanging of metal trucks (the things that attach the wheels to the board) on metal coping and rails."

However, the council believes by providing the skatepark for older and experienced users as well as beginners, it is likely to deter anti-social behaviour and support sport and leisure.
