Replacement skate ramp
The skate ramp at the top of Battle High Street was installed 25 years ago when Battle Youth Centre was on the site. In 2018, following an inspection, the ramp was closed off as it is no longer safe.
The County Council will remove the ramp and the facility will be lost to the town is the funds cannot be raised to replace it. It was hoped the ramp could be repaired but reports have advised the ramp needs replacing. The Town Council are keen for this facility to be reinstated for the benefit of the town and have agreed to take responsibility for a new ramp if community fund raising can secure the £17,000 required. The Crowdfunder has now closed but the Council are still looking for support to be able to take this forward. Donations can be made at The Almonry.
The refurbishment and redevelopment of the Almonry, which is in need of major repair, has been integral to the
Finance & General Purposes Committee’s Action Plan since 2015.
Details of the plan can be found on the committee page for the Finance & General Purposes Committee.
Fit For Battle
Battle Health Pathway is a community group, under the umbrella of Battle Local Action Planning Group (BLAPG), formed to explore the feasibility of building an all-weather pathway around the recreation ground on North Trade Road that could be used for sports training, exercise and leisure.
In addition to the pathway plans are in progress for a replacement pavilion & café at the recreation ground (The questionnaire is now closed).
The Battle Health Pathway will provide connectivity and improve access to the recreation ground for the residents of Battle and the surrounding area. It will be used by people of all ages – walkers, runners, young cyclists, scooter users, people with mobility difficulties, people working to regain fitness and those with children in push-chairs.
Minutes from their meetings are available on the Environment Committee pages.
Further details regarding the project can be found on the Battle Health Pathway website http://battlehealthpathway.co.uk/
