DESIGNS for a £60,000 skateboard park in South Park have been unveiled.

The designs are based on lengthy consultations with local youngsters.

The plan features a skate bowl, ramps and a raised area for jumps.

Darlington Borough Council's planning committee is expected to approve the project when it meets on Wednesday.

One letter of objection has been received, but officers are recommending the plans be approved.

Officers say the park will not generate any significant increase in traffic or noise.

The skateboard park forms part of the £3.9m refurbishment of South Park.
