10-15% will go towards Design Expenses - Civil Engineering, architectural Consultation, Survey, construction documentation.
85-90% of funding will go towards Construction Expenses - Demolition, administration, travel, permits, drainage, equipment hire/rental, materials.
Community fundraising will also be a major contributing factor that will go towards making sure we carry out this project to its full potential and the completion stage.
How will the project be delivered?
The Clare & Gilbert Valley YAC (Youth Advisory Committee) will be delivering this project with the guidance and assistance from the Youth Development Officer, local council and community organisations as well as community members. Employment Directions will also be a major supporter by providing guidance and making sure policies and procedures and guidelines are adhered to throughout the process. As well as following legal responsibility ensuring the project can meet safety regulations.
How will the project benefit the region?
Through this project there is more opportunity for social interaction with other youth which helps develop trusting and cohesive communities. Skate parks also provide a safer environment for skateboarding to occur. There is a growing body of evidence linking physical activity to great mental health benefits. Which adds importance to providing such facilities. Skate parks can also displace other less desirable activities within communities. Its a key space for activity and personal expression.
