We had a meeting tonight with the Council members who are managing the project. We mainly discussed how the project will pan out (tight deadlines) and how we'll be skating a Derby City skatepark this time next year.
The Council trust that between Hooked and Rollersnakes the most successful park will be built, and the best consultation with everyone concerned will happen. We're going to have a good park.
The expressions of interest have come back in and the Council are eliminating some skatepark contractors through varied criteria and our recommendations. It will then be a pitch for the remaining contractors to get us a design that fits our brief.
Then we'll be holding consultations to see what we want from the park and how we integrate everyone's ideas - this will be around September time.
Then after much working out and redesigning, the build will start after Christmas.
Jingle Bells, what a Christmas pressy for Derby.

We'll keep you posted!
