The Parish Council's skatepark project, for which grant funding of £50,000 has been obtained, has been delayed because the parent company of the chosen contractor has gone into administration.The Parish Clerk has written to the company to seek an assurance that it can satisfactorily undertake and complete the work and we are awaiting a response.

Great news for Pilsley. The Parish Council's bid to Viridor Credits Environmental Company for grant towards the cost of its proposed skate park on the Miners Welfare Sports Ground has been successful and we we have received funding of £50,000.We have accepted a tender from Freestyle Skateparks in the sum of £59,000 including several additional features which have been built into the design at no extra cost.We hope to have the skate park up and running within the next few weeks.Under Viridors' conditions of grant we had to find a third party willing to donate 10% of the £50,000 and we were able to find this from within the £10,000 which we received from Sun and Soil Solar Farms Ltd who built the Padley Wood Solar Farm. The difference will be made up from the Parish Council's financial reserves.Whilst the skate park will represent good progress in the Parish Council's plans to increase recreational facilities for our young people we will not be resting on our laurels.We have almost completed the public consultation exercise on our proposals to provide additional play equipment on our three recreational grounds and when we have analysed the results we propose to invite tenders for the equipment and then to seek grants towards the cost.Our architects are also preparing plans for the new sports pavilion on the Miners Welfare Sports Ground and we hope to seek planning approval in the near future. The exercise has had to be put on ice for a short time whilst we await the outcome of the Coal Industry Social Welfare Organisation's planning application for residential development on the site of the former Miners Welfare because the result of this is likely to determine the number of car parking spaces which we will have to include in our planning application for the new pavilion project.
