Designs & Planning

March 2021

We have paid Clark & Kent Contractors to produce a full 3D design of the pump track ready to apply for planning permission. We hope to receive the designs in April of this year.

We have also had a free topographic survey of the site completed by Tim Coombs from Alpine Land Surveyors.

Site Survey

Land Clearing

27 February 2021

Members of the project, along with the community and Hazelwood Landscaping cleared the land for the pump track designers to visit and get designs for the track. We are working with Clark & Kent Contractors to design a state-of-the-art pump track that will be both aesthetically pleasing and super fun to ride.
Prior to the clearing session, we met with Helen Nicholas from Gower Unearthed and the Bishops Wood site warden Karen Jones to gain ecological and historical knowledge of the site to ensure no wildlife is being harmed in the making of the facility.
