A few residents, concerned that a skate park might be installed in Harbour Field, enquired at Icklesham Parish Council whether this was likely to occur. IPC replied that there were no plans for a skate park at Harbour Field and any considerations were a long way off. Although they are aware that some young people did request a skate ramp over a year ago a resident’s consultation would have to take place first and that is not expected to happen in the foreseeable future.
