On December 1st, Clevedon Skate Project launched a public consultation regarding the design and build of both the new skate park and pump track. The consultation will be open for one month and, due to Covid restrictions, will be entirely digital. Permission has been granted for these developments via North Somerset and Clevedon Councils’, the consultation represents the next step towards gaining funding for the work to commence.
Clevedon Skate Project are a registered charity whose purpose is to redevelop the existing park, develop a new pump track and engage the local community in all wheeled sport activities (skateboards/scooters/bikes/inline skates etc). The project’s specific goal is to redevelop the land from the skate park to the tennis courts to accommodate the new pump track and replace the existing, out dated ramps with a new purpose-built concrete park. Maverick (skate park designers and builders) and Velosolutions (pump track designers and builders) have been granted the contracts for these builds and with an incredible wealth of experience behind them, are partnering in the survey.
The online survey is open for anyone to take part in, whether they are an experienced rider/skater or parent/carer/grandparent of park users, or maybe just hold an interest in the redevelopment of Clevedon’s sporting facilities, these findings will inform the final designs drawn up by Maverick, Velosolutions and CSP.
Clevedon Skate Project propose building facilities that not only enhance the area and give greater pride to locals; complimenting the revamped marine lake, tennis courts and green spaces, but that also drawing in sports tourism from further afield. With trained sports coaches and a community ethos they aim to increase the number and diversity of locals that access and utilise wheeled sports for physical and mental health.
