Aldermaston Parish Council reapplies to build skate ramp at recreation ground





A community is one step closer to getting a new skate ramp.

Aldermaston Parish Council has reapplied to West Berkshire Council for permission to build a new concrete skate ramp at the village recreation ground.

Skatepark design and construction specialist Betongpark will oversee the construction under the supervision of parish councillors and invested community figures.

The proposed ramp will be designed to accommodate various skill and age levels and be suitable for skateboards, rollerblades, roller skates, scooters and BMXs.

It is hoped that a separate access path can be built to connect the ramp to the pedestrian gate to the park.

Times of work would be limited to 7am to 6pm Monday to Friday and 8am to 1pm on Saturday to reduce disruption to park users, neighbouring residents and business owners.

Parking and delivery access would also be maintained on Basingstoke Road.

The structural warranty of the proposed design is 25 years.

A public consultation was held at Aldermaston Village Hall in November 2022.

Feedback on the ramp’s proposed materials and location was incorporated into revised designs and submitted to the district council for approval.

Demand for a new ramp have been strong since the previous ramp was removed in 2021 after falling into a bad state of repair.

The council is expected to decide on the application by Friday, March 22.
