Can you help find a new home for Rush Skatepark and The Grace Network?
Published: Thursday, 19 August, 2021
Active Gloucestershire, Rush Skatepark, The Grace Network and Stroud District Council are working together on a new campaign to find RUSH Skatepark and The Grace Network permanent new homes, as they leave Brimscombe Port, ahead of redevelopment work on the site which will involve restoring the Brimscombe Port basin and canal.
Rush Skatepark will be closing on Sunday 29 August and The Grace Network will leave Brimscombe Port by the end of September. Rush would like to restart in an alternative venue and the Grace Network will be maintaining its social enterprises until a more permanent new home can be found.
The requirements are:
- Rush Skatepark – circa 40,000 square feet with 9 meters or more height (at the highest point)
- The Grace Network – 18,000 to 40,000 square feet (mixed planning B and E class)
Both Rush and The Grace Network are valued community organisations – and we hope that this call will prompt a landowner or someone within the business community to bring forward a building which could provide a new permanent home for each of them.
