On behalf of The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust and working with Guy Hollaway, DHA Transport provided a Technical Transport Statement to overcome concerns relating to parking, servicing and refuse collection.

Discussions with local authorities were necessary to ensure a scheme was delivered in consideration to forthcoming bus improvement works adjacent to the site boundary and ensuring an appropriate level of parking was provided given the unique nature of the scheme. 

The £10 million skate park, which is being funded by The Roger De Haan Charitable Trust, in Folkestone, is believed to be the world's first multi-storey urban skate park and will feature one of the tallest climbing walls in the UK.
