Brighton & Hove is celebrating as the city council’s bid for a £2.2 million Lottery grant to restore The Level has been granted. The money comes from the Funds’ joint Parks for People scheme. More information on the council’s website.
As part of the overall restoration of The Level, Freestyle Skateparks have been appointed to design and build the new skatepark and work will now start on the design. Skaters and local residents will have an opportunity to feed into the process.
Once a design has been developed, the project team will work with the Brighton & Hove Skateparks Association to prepare funding bid applications to raise the additional funding required to build the skatepark. More details about the timescales and the consultation and engagement process for The Level Skatepark will follow shortly.
