Plans are being made for a new pump track for bikes and scooters on a Suffolk sports ground.

An application was made to East Suffolk Council for the development of the community pump track on the west side of the car park on the Millennium Sports Ground in Kesgrave.

The site is currently vacant land, with its use described as public open space in application documents.

The plans are part of Kesgrave Town Council's intent to provide recreational facilities and follow a consultation over the summer.

The pump track will be a tarmac circuit of rollers, banked turns, and other features.

Kesgrave Town Council said of the project: "They [the track] can be used by bikes such as BMX, skateboards, kid’s scooters, adaptive bikes or wheelchairs and are a facility with everyone in mind; from young beginners to experienced riders and, importantly, they encourage outdoor-based exercise.

"The land available to us for the installation of the track is on the west side of the car park on the Millennium Sports Ground, tucked into the side near the trees, this will minimise any disturbance to nearby residents and CCTV will also be installed as part of the project. Care will be taken to ensure appropriate landscaping blends in with the surroundings.

"The facility will be designed for those of all abilities, from beginners to experienced riders."

The application, which was made on December 8, is awaiting a decision.
