Final designs a new skate park at the Maurice Thornton Playing Fields were approved by the Town Council and granted planning permission by Wealden Dictrict Council in 2012.
The Youth Council was given a voice in relation to local issues and were instrumental in putting forward proposals for the new skate park.
The skate park, which was opened in November 2012, includes built-in ramps, jumps and more!
The construction of the new skate park in Hailsham is only part of a wider package of improvements to recreational facilities in the town the Youth Council will work with project partners towards in the future.
It has been a long journey getting to this point for the Youth Council and the Youth Council continued to work closely with residents, the Town Council and other local authorities to see this project through to the end!
