Leatherhead Leisure Centre Skate Park Refurb

Following the well-received improvements to the skate park facilities at Kingston Road Recreation Ground in Leatherhead, Mole Valley District Council (MVDC) has turned its attention to the outdated skate park at Leatherhead Leisure Centre.

The project

The 12-year old skate park equipment at the leisure centre is coming to the end of its life and is in need of modernising.

To better understand what existing and prospective users of the skate park want from the new-look facilities in terms of the look, feel and layout, MVDC held a first stage public consultation in July 2019. Local residents and users of skate parks were invited to get involved and tell us what aspect/s of the existing facilities worked well, what doesn't and to suggest anything they would like to see in the finished development when it opens.

What happens next?

Over 100 people got involved in the first stage of consultation, the feedback from which helped inform a design brief which was sent out to specialist companies. Six designs were received and a six-week public consultation was held between November 2019 and January 2020 to enable anyone interested in the future design of the skate park to choose their top three designs.

Thank you to everyone who cast their vote during this period. Updates concerning the winning design will appear here when a decision has been made.
