Round 2... ding ding

Round 2 has been successfully reached in the bidding process. What this means is that the 'Expression of Interest' that was submitted at Round 1 has been accepted and the project can now progress to apply for the bigger amount of money towards this project.

This is awesome news as the project is one step closer to being the epic park we all want, but we're up against 40 other projects so fingers crossed the funding peeps think our project is worth it!

Watch this space for the next update!

Derby in Sidewalk mag

Cheers to Ben Powell for putting a mention in - it's true. At this stage based on consultation by Hooked and Council generosity, the Council are putting £200,000 towards a Derby City skatepark.

Now, we don't just want a £200,000 skatepark if we can help it, so we're just submitted a bid for a much larger amount of money to build a skatepark that will be not only regionally significant, but hopefully nationally.

We're looking for something different, something monumental, and something big. 

Through this blog, Facebook and various other communications we're all going to be able to stay in the loop as to what's happening where, and how to get your ideas heard.

Nothing's going to move forward without you guys knowing about it.

Keep you eyes and ears to the ground, but if somethings happening, it will be on here.

Stay up to date
