Guernsey skate park design ready within the month

Skate park designed by Gravity Engineering
A design workshop was held to allow all those interested to have some input

Initial designs for a new skate park in Guernsey should be finished within the month, the designers have said.

The £200,000 facility at Beau Sejour was given planning approval in December after years of campaigning.

A design workshop was held on Saturday to give all interested parties a chance to contribute their views.

Phil Aller, professional BMX rider and former Guernsey resident, said he was confident the island would end up with something worth having.

'Hard task'

He said: "The island definitely needs this skate park, it's been a long time coming, and it's going to be well worth it."

Mark Churchill, head of design at Gravity Engineering which specialises in designing and constructing skate parks, said the next step was to take all the data and requests of what people want and start formulating designs.

He said: "It's quite a hard task to try and please everyone, and try and get everything that everybody wants in there, but hopefully we can get the majority of people happy."

The preliminary design is due to be made public on the internet for people to leave comments before a final design is put together.
