The existing ramp was built around 25 years ago, it had a facelift in the year 2000 but has subsequently fallen into disrepair leading to it's closure by East Sussex County Council (ESCC), the land owner, in 2018.
During discussions with the County Council, who had previously held a Youth Centre at the site, it was agreed that it could again be a popular facility for the young people of Battle. However, they advised that there are no funds or obligation to reinstate the ramp. ESCC have agreed to contribute the cost of removing the existing ramp towards the replacement.
Battle Town Council has agreed that if the funds can be raised for a replacement ramp, the Town Council will accept responsibility for its maintenance to save this facility from being lost to the town.
Advise and quotes were obtained and it has been decided that a new half pipe ramp would be a good replacement for the youth of the town.
We are now asking for the Community to back this project and help us raise the funds needed for the replacement ramp!
