New Skate Park

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Rooksdown Parish Council are about to start building a new skate park at Rooksdown Park.  Works are due to commence on 13 December and will continue until early March 2018.

If you have any queries, please call 01256 844844 and ask to speak to someone about the Rooksdown Park skate park.

Thank you.


Manydown FAQ

Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council, as planning authority, consulted on the Manydown application earlier this year. This included a response provided by the Parish Council following a meeting with interested residents. The Manydown project team has reviewed the comments that were made in that consultation and published answers to frequently asked questions to give further information or explanation on the website at

Further discussion is now taking place with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council as the planning authority, as well as relevant statutory consultees. Updated information will be submitted to the planning authority and it is expected there will be a further planning consultation during autumn 2017 to seek feedback on this updated information.


Do you want a say in Rooksdown's future?

Rooksdown is growing fast, and we need to make sure that we have the best facilities we can. 

We need to make sure that all the money from the new developments is spent wisely, giving us the best facilities and the best environment, making Rooksdown an even better place to live.

Much of this money will come through the Parish Council.  We have two vacancies for councillors at the moment.  If you want to be part of Rooksdown's future why not have look at how you could become a Parish Councillor.
