Detailed Design Update
Following extensive community consultation, council resolved to proceed with a Skate Park Facility in Davenport Square, Macclesfield in April 2015.
Design changes incorporating noise attenuation mounding has resulted in the detailed plans taking longer than anticipated to prepare. This has also resulted in the cost extending beyond the preliminary estimate.
Quotes are currently being sought. If the quotes are within the previously approved budget, work will be programmed to start on site as soon as weather and ground conditions permit.
If the approved budget is not adequate, a further report will be prepared for Council in September 2015.
Following community consultation, at the meeting held on 20 April 2015, Council resolved to proceed with the construction of the skate park at Davenport Square Macclesfield.
