SALTS SKATEPARK UPDATE

June 25th, 2018


Seaford Town Council is progressing its plans for a state-of-the-art skate park at The Salts. The Council successfully campaigned to secure £165,000 of Section 106 funding from the new housing development at Martello Mews, opposite the train station. 


Local skaters were asked what they wanted at the skate park and to choose their preferred design from three proposals, and the design by Canvas was awarded the contract to deliver the new skatepark once the funding was in place.

It was made clear during the consultation that the skatepark could not be built until the funds were in hand and that the Town Council would also have to look for a further £35,000 to reach the £200,000 cost of the park selected by the local skaters.

It would not be appropriate to start work on the facility until after the summer period in any event, as the area will be out for use for at least two months. It is hoped therefore to complete the works over the winter of 2018/19 subject to securing the additional funding of £35,000. This will mean the facility will be available for use in the spring of 2019.
