Scores of young people and adults took part in a consultation to give their views on a proposed skate park upgrade.

Swanmore Parish Council put on show its plans for the skate park site in New Road.

The council plans to replace the existing steel and wooden ramps with a modern concrete skate park.

It is part of a £300,000 plan for the New Road playing field — the council also hopes to build a running track, extend the car park and build a toilet block.

Pupils from Swanmore Primary School and Swanmore College, and village residents went to see the designs.

Darcy Wright, from Canvas Spaces, the skate park company leading the consultation day, said: ‘It was good to see so many young people attend.

‘The new site will be more durable, giving a much better ride and potentially lasting for more than 20 years.’

Chairman of the New Road Playing Field Committee Councillor Pete Ansty, said: ‘It’s been positive to see such a diverse group of people interested in what we are trying to achieve who want to contribute and give their time to make sure what we deliver is a great facility.’
