Crowthorne Parish Council drops support for HopeZoneBy Hugh Fort

A council has suspended its support for a drop-in youth centre to be built and suggested a test-run because of concerns from the community about anti-social behaviour.
Instead, Crowthorne Parish Council voted in favour of trialling the HopeZone at Morgan Centre, Crowthorne, rather than a new build on the recreation ground, at its meeting on Tuesday.
The council agreed to regularly monitor anti-social behaviour and demand to be initially reviewed at three months.
Reverend Martin Ceaser, chair of the HopeZone Committee, said: “We welcome the suggestions the council have made and will work with them.”
HopeZone’s plans to build on the recreation ground will go before Bracknell Forest planning committee in due course.
