Guy Hollaway given go-ahead for multi-storey skatepark

  • Comment

Shepway District Council has approved plan by Guy Hollaway Architects for the world’s first multi-storey skatepark in Folkestone, Kent

Backed by philanthropist and Saga Holidays boss Roger De Haan, the £10 million centre includes ‘skate-able floors’, a 11m-high climbing and boxing club and a rooftop function room.

The project, which will replace a former bingo hall and sits within Terry Farrell’s wider masterplan for the seaside town, will be clad in metal mesh and left open to the elements.

The park has been designed ‘to attract both local youth and international competition’ and will be open to skate boarders, BMX, scooters, blades and roller skates. 

According to the Kent and London-based practice, work on the site will begin ‘almost immediately’ with construction expected to take between 18 and 24 months.
