Settle Town Council are leading the project to create a Skate Park in Settle.
This has been a long-term dream for the young people of Settle over the past 15 years and has significant support from the local community. The Town Council have now raised £120k to complete this project for the young people of Settle.
Large funding applications have been successful from a variety of funding sources such as National Lottery, Settle Middle School Legacy Fund and Sport England and S106 planning gain monies from Skipton Properties, Falcon Park development and McCarthy & Stone, The Wickets. Community funds raised or donated so far has amounted to £1500 and still coming in.
We are hoping to complete by October 2019.
The Town Council are pleased to announce that we now have a project manager in place to oversee this project to completion.
The Design and Build tender specification has now gone out to 4 companies (we are using a Framework called ESPO).
The companies who have been asked to tender are Bendcrete, Canvass Ltd, Maverick Industries and Gravity Parks.
The Planning application for the lighting and fencing has been submitted to Craven District Council Planning.
