A SKATE bowl has been approved for Puddletown recreation ground.

The bowl, which will be below ground level, is to be built at the Dorchester Road play area as part of improvements to the recreation ground.

As a result of previous worries about potential noise it has been moved across the recreation ground opposite to the site originally proposed.

Puddletown Area Group Parish Council supported the application describing it as “a core element of the Recreation Ground improvements. It will provide an amenity which will help improve the health and well being of the community and is well supported by young people.”
