when is the skate park in dawlish goin to be built. We have had the money for just over4 months now and there is no talk of a date when it will be started. Is it ver going to be built or will we just be kicked off every where and peoples excusise is "i voted". well we havnt got it yet so basicly it doesnt matter if you voted you still have to help for it to be built.
now evryone has a reason to kick use if but we still dont have any where to go.
so can you please please start building it NOW not when the footballs is over or next month NOW.
JUST BECASE WE HAVE THE MONEY DOESNT MEAN THAT IT IS DONE LIKE THAT.
I spoke to Teignbridge on 10th March and was told then the skate park was due to be started in May.
Probably when the legal niceties are sorted out. Don't forget, we live in a nanny state and we wouldn't want an accident on the park when it could have been avoided---do we? Insurances cost money and are usually increased annually, or will someone take the risk and not insure on a probability?
the insurence has been payed
well that is to late it was ment to start in janurary the march now may i say start now
or i will never happen
I and a number of other volunteers have been working very hard to make the skate park a reality over many months. Thanks to the votes of the people of Dawlish and the generosity of Dawlish Town Council, we have had the finance in place for some time. The problem is getting through the mass of red tape on such things as public liability insurance, planning consent, legal requirements, and health and safety issues. Whilst all this is necessary and to a lerge extent unavoidable, it is frustrating and irksome to have to deal with these delays. We have tried to keep the young skaters informed through our own contacts. The present position is that we are almost there and, all being well, hope to sign the contract with the builders within the next two weeks with the building work scheduled to start in early July. It will take about 3 months to complete.
Contrary to some messages, Dawlish Town Council have been very supportive throughout.
The new youth and community centre may take somewhat longer, but we hope to start work on this by the end of 2008 provided the finance is in place. The reason we started with the Skate Park was because we obtained the money from the National Lottery solely for that project and decided to go for it, at least as a start.
