    You want/hope/expect a billionaire businessman to support something that's flying in the face of big business?

    The design brief also say the space should be suitable for urban arts and dance events. So its not exclusively a skate park they are proposing. And that also raises the prospect of Billy the Socialist turning up and requisitioning the park for one of his jamming with the poor sort of events.

    In the interests of fairness - here's a mail that Iain Borden and Rich Holland sent to LLSB that I've just been sent.

    Rich and I continue to say in all the interviews that we have done this week that we believe that the best solution for the Southbank situation is that skateboarding be kept at the Undercroft, either as it is or in some kind of modified or even, ideally, expanded manner.


    However, we also understand the situation facing the SBC and we personally believe that it is worth spending some time now on considering the HB site – and so that it can provide the best possible skate-able space while the Festival Wing building works take place and also, if necessary, a permanent home after that construction period. Doing this now means that we can allow for some appropriate gestation and development time, and then construction, in order for the HB site to be useable in late 2014 (when the Festival Wing building works would be likely to start, and the Undercroft consequently be closed). Not doing this now would mean running the serious risk of their being no skate-able space at all for a period of months or even more.

    The other point we have been trying to make in the interviews is that the designs as released earlier this week are far from being fixed, and indeed are only visualisations of the kinds of things which would be possible. Rich and I are not the designers, and we have just being trying to put together an initial brief which a wider group can then take forward as necessary. So the intention is to develop these (and other) HB options with skaters, bmx, graffiti, architects/designers etc over the coming months.

    just to clear this up...

    The key thing here is there is no legitimate reason or evidence that the undercroft will have to close, this has not been proved or justified, but the southbank centre are saying this to people who are not part of the current sb community to convince them that we need the hungerford bridge site. They have then released these plans, which have no necessity or justification, in order to convince the public they are providing for us something bigger, better, shiny-er and understandable but ultimately the homogenised space which is apparently what everyone is meant to aspire to.

    Any conversation about the hungerford bridge plan will be used by the southbank centre to justify the destruction of southbank. It has always been about preservation and not relocation and until the southbank centre are prepared to engage in that conversation any talk of the hungerford bridge is detrimental to the campaign.

    Good stuff.

    Still think it'd be nice if that other trendy clothes company that sells to skateboarders (the one with the London shop) did something social media-wise.

    Which one is greater, Sun or Moon?

    The answer is The Moon because Sun shines in the day when there is already light available. But moon shines in the night when there is no light.

    The SBC press release about the Hungerford Bridge site seems to have gone quite far. Even the Berrics ran it albeit with comments of support for what LLSB are doing.

    At this point, the Long Live Southbank group isn't agreeing to the proposed skatepark. After all, Southbank is a historic location, and they have fought so hard to halt the destruction of their spot. Whatever the end result may be, Southbank is the start of a revolution in the conservation of skatespots. Skaters all over the world can follow Long Live Southbank's blueprint for survival when faced with the destruction of a historic spot.
