Porthleven Skate Park has planning permission with the build is set to start in Sept
Porthleven’s new skate park is going to happen. As this afternoon, the final hurdles over issues like drainage and flooding has been resolved and therefore, I can confirmed that Cornwall Council will approve the plans for the new Skate Park in Porthleven.
Even more exciting the is the build work is scheduled to start on either September the 12th or 19th. It will take approximately 10 weeks to finish.
Massive thanks and credit goes to all who have been involved in the project to raise £125k; the hard-working skate park committee (Mark, Zoe, Naomi and Dai), the various individual and business funders, two of which are the Town Council (£20k) and Sports England (£75k). It has been a real community effort to realise the dream of a new skate park in Porthleven. Well done indeed, it has been a real pleasure to work on this project.
Thanks should go to Chris Strike of DA Design who acted as the planning agent for free, Cornwall Council planners, and the team over at Maverick who at every stage where quick to respond to any questions from either the EA or Cornwall Council.
And wow, what a skate park it will be!
