CONSULTATIONS are set to be held next month as plans for a facility for skateboarders and BMX bikers in Lowestoft gather pace.
A series of consultation events are to be held to discuss the �200,000 plan for Normanston Park.
Locals are being encouraged to 'get on board' and attend the events to view and vote on preferred designs for the new Skate/BMX park.
'The consultation events are to display all submitted design proposals from short-listed companies, based on the skateboard and BMX group's needs and aspirations, to allow the wider local community to vote on their preferred designs,' a Waveney District Council spokesman said.
You may also want to watch:
'Votes for preferred designs will be collated and scored, to be included as the main contributing factor for design within the tender evaluations for design and build of the North Lowestoft Skate/BMX Park.'
Last month, The Journal revealed that the Waveney Play Partnership and North Lowestoft Skate/BMX Group (NLSBG) had received a �30,000 donation from Waste Recycling Environmental (WREN) to support their project to build the concrete facility.
