Plans for a new skate park and artificial grass pitch in Aylesham have been given a boost after being granted more than £120,000 in funding.
Dover District Council has agreed to allocate £85,710 towards the skate park, which was proposed by Aylesham Parish Council following a survey of young people in the area earlier this year.
A grant of £33,350 will also be used to convert a multi-use games area at the Aylesham and Snowdown Social Welfare Scheme's grounds into an artificial grass pitch.
A further £5,000 will go towards a detailed survey of natural grass pitches.
Funding will come from money given by developers Barratt Homes and Persimmon Homes under planning agreements to build in the village.
Councillor Keith Morris, leader of Dover District Council said: “We are delighted to see this funding from planning agreements in Aylesham being directed to help the local community.”
