Charlton skate park: First detailed images emerge with construction planned for summer

Charlton skate park

The first images of the planned skate park for Charlton Park have been published as part of the final planning application for the scheme.

They show the park, which was given outline planning permission by Greenwich councillors in September, curving around the current mini-gym.

This latest planning application fills in the detailed design for the scheme, with construction due to take place on weekdays only between June and September.

A viewing mound will be created, while the existing table tennis tables will be moved. One tree will be lost to create the skate park.

Rather embarrassingly for Greenwich Council, which is commissioning the facility, the designers have managed to spell “Greenwich” wrongly.

The full report and more images are available on the Greenwich Council website, click on the document marked “condition report”. You can make comments to Greenwich Council – it’s planning reference 17/1288/R.

    Greenwitch? It’s a bit late for April Fools!

    The Charlton Society has objected because the application does not show the landscaping promised and approved in the Outline Application. This landscaping is crucial to Conservation Area requirements and is called for by both the Royal Greenwich Heritage Trust and the Charlton Society.

    Hello The Charlton Society,

    Thanks for posting here. Can you clarify which element of promised landscaping is missing from this application?

    Trees/bushes along the western edge of the skate park, maybe more. There’s more to this but I have no idea who you are so have to stop there.
