Newhaven Pump Track, East Sussex


In 2019 Clark & Kent Contractors won the tender to consult, design and construct a pump track and skatepark at Newhaven in East Sussex.

The main objectives were to:

  • Consult with residents, community groups and user groups.
  • Develop concept designs and produce 3D designs and plans to suit exact site requirements taking into consideration several adverse conditions.
  • Further consultation to develop the final design and produce 3D packages for approval.
  • Construction stage to handover.
  • 12-month defects and maintenance package.
  • 10-year guarantee.
  • Opening event and promotional services.

The project value was around £230,000 plus VAT for pump track and skatepark for Lewes District Council. The construction period was eight weeks. Our design team implemented the wishes of all aspects of the user group and developed a well-rounded design to cater for BMX, skaters, mountain bikers, incliners and scooter users. DDA compliance into viewing areas with all-ability upper section compromising of more rounded and spaced features on flat level rather than utilising the cascade of the ground.

Construction elements included:

  • Site clearance
  • Measuring and marking out
  • Importation of material
  • Shaping and compaction of material and sub base
  • Drainage works
  • Tarmac surfacing
  • Line marking
  • Turfing scheme

"Clark and Kent Contractors were commissioned by Lewes District Council for the design and build of a tarmac pump track and concrete skatepark in Newhaven. The site featured a difficult terrain and the brief was to have a synergy between the two facilities allowing riders of all ages to use the facilities and flow between them.

Working closely with the local user group Clark and Kent produced a fantastic design that made the best use of the site and offered value for money. The team take pride in their work, are very efficient, and work very hard to achieve an exceptional end product.

I would not hesitate to recommend them."
