The long saga of Kessingland’s proposed skate park may be nearing its conclusion, as the Parish Council has stepped in to help the project secure the land it needs.
At the moment, the required land is leased from the council by the Kessingland Sports and Social Club, who are against the project. However, council officials have informed the Social Club that the terms of their lease state that their decision making process in unlawful, as a council member must be present at board meetings.
