The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following allocation of £240 donated by author K. C. Dowling and £402 raised by the Julian Wadden Treasure Hunt towards the Skatepark Project. This takes our community raised match funding for the project to £23,753, so only £54,247 to go!

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated this morning:

http://www.marplememorialpark.org.uk/projects/skate-park-improvements.html

As everyone who has been following the project will know, in March 2015 we submitted a grant application to the Lafarge-Tarmac Landfill Community Fund seeking £62,000, which was the balance of funds that we needed to complete the project. This was reviewed in May 2015 and unfortunately our application was not successful so we now need to decide what to do next.

The cost of the project is £100,000. So far £23,000 of Community Match-Funding has been raised. The Council has also set aside £22,000, so we have £45,000 altogether. This means that we still need to raise £55,000 to achieve the aims of the project.

We are going to need lots more support from the community if we are to recover from this setback and eventually succeed, so if you can help please get in touch.

Watch this space for PLAN C!

Here's an extract from the letter we received yesterday afternoon:

I'm delighted to report that Planning Permission for the Skatepark has been GRANTED!

So it's just a wait to see the outcome of our grant application towards the end of May now. Fingers crossed everyone!

Brilliant well done to all .

Have you heard anything about planning application yet ...
No but today is the target recommendation date so I'm hoping that it will be very soon. I've asked the council to request an update from the planners already. As soon as I know I'll post.

The Marple Memorial Park Skatepark Development Project page on the Friends of the Park web site has been updated following receipt of £53 of community funding from Marple Hall School, which was raised by two of their pupils doing a sponsored silence last term. This takes our community raised match funding for the project to £22,981, just £19 short of an amazing £23,000.

Think you've been granted full planning permission. I receive planning applications each week from SMBC.

That's not correct @amazon. The application is in the consultation period at present.

An application for planning permission was submitted on Friday 6 March 2015. This should soon appear on the Planning Portal and I'll add a link when it does.

Here's the final version of Marple College Students' video shot during Marple Carnival 2013 that was included with our Skatepark Grant Application:



The video was filmed and edited by Media Studies students attending Marple Sixth Form College. Unfortunately, due to technical problems with their equipment, the sound recording proved to be unusable but we think they’ve made a great job of producing a video that captures the day despite this set-back.
