Kingston Road Skate Park Designs Revealed
Residents and skate park users have the opportunity to help choose the winning skate park design as part of Mole Valley District Council's project to revamp the existing facilities at Kingston Road Recreation Ground in Leatherhead.
Two designs will be available to vote on during a public consultation, which closes at midday on Wednesday 28 March 2018.
Please visit www.molevalley.gov.uk/kingstonroadskatepark to view the two designs and vote for your favourite. Votes can also be submitted in person at a number of locations until the consultation closes. Voting slips and copies of the designs will be available at the HelpShop in Leatherhead, the Council's offices in Dorking.
When the public vote has closed at the end of March, anyone who has expressed an interest in further shaping the winning design will have their opportunity to do so. The refurbished facilities are intended not only to support skaters and BMXers, but wider users of the recreation ground. The construction is scheduled to begin on-site in late spring/early summer and it is hoped the facilities will be available to users later in the summer. Every effort will be made to keep the existing skate park available for use for as long as possible while the work is carried out.
Councillor Lucy Botting, Executive Member for Wellbeing, said: "These are really exciting times for the play facilities at the Kingston Road Recreation Ground, given our refurbishment of the playground too. Helping to create skate park facilities that skaters will enjoy for years to come is a crucial part of that process. Please do get involved and help shape the winning design."
