A new, £2.7m skate park and extreme sports centre is set to open in Aberdeen in summer 2006.

Local council planning approval for the complex – which has been in the pipeline for more than a decade – was gained in March.

The entire development will be run as a not-for-profit company with £1.26m being provided by the council and £500,000 already secured from bank loans.

A charity – Transition Extreme – has been established to raise money for the remainder of the funding.

Featuring 18,000sq ft (1,670sq m) of indoor skateboard and in-line BMX area, other facilities at the venue will include a climbing centre, a healthy eating café, two band practice studios, a recreation area with pool tables and DJ equipment, a visitor centre and four sports retail units.

The centre will be situated on Aberdeen’s beach front area on a derelict site near to the Patio Hotel.

Neil, Stevenson, chief executive of Transition Extreme, said: “This is an exciting community project for Aberdeen, delivering significant benefits and creating a major visitor attraction. However, there is still a lot of hard work to be done to make the project a reality and we are looking for companies to assist in raising the remainder of the capital required.” Details: www.transition-extreme.com
