Local consultation has identified that there is a need for a skatepark facility in Chipping Norton.

The Community and local young people have teamed up with the Council to raise funds towards a new concrete skatepark that will be designed with local young people in consultation with the successful Applicant of this Tender.

The proposed location is the New Street Recreation Ground, off the A44. This is a grass field area, located next to the children's play park. This may require directing the existing footpath (to the South) and moving some items of play equipment, to make the best use of this potential space.

The design should include a planting scheme to ensure that the skatepark is visually in keeping with the area.

The outcome of this Tender will be to identify and select a single Contractor to take the Project forward from consultation to a final design and a completed installed concrete skatepark, to suit the needs of the local young people whilst taking into account a range of ages, abilities and wheels, e.g. scooters, skateboards and BMX, and also taking account of the site constraints.

This Tender aims to select a Contractor based upon examples of previous work, financial viability, Health & Safety procedures, skills, experience of working with Councils and Community Groups, and expertise to delivering a fully funded project from start to finish within budget.

The Applicant is required to provide value for money, use local suppliers where possible, deliver added value, cause minimum disturbance to the community whilst delivering a durable, well designed concrete skatepark built to a high quality that suits the needs of the local young people and adheres to the Authority's requirements.
