COUNCILLORS have given the go-ahead for a youth shelter.

The shelter will be installed in the Priory Memorial Gardens in Royston at a cost of almost £5,000.

Members of North Herts District Council's Royston area committee approved the scheme on Wednesday evening.

In a report to the committee, community development officer Alan Fleck said the idea of a youth shelter and its location had the support of police.

The Priory Memorial Gardens is inside an alcohol-free zone.

The move comes after a survey by members of the Royston Youth Council had given support to the scheme.

The shelter will be located between the children's play area and the multi-use games area which already exist in the Priory Memorial Gardens.
