London, 23/04/2013. The notorious Southbank Skate Park, Britain's most famous landmark and hub in the international skateboarding community, is under threat by a plan to turn it in retail units. The project is part of the refurbishment of the entire Festival Wing being undertaken by The Southbank Centre.<br />
In 2001 it was reported that skateboarding and the sport's associated consumer goods market were contributing up to £10m dollars (£6m) to the UK economy. Southbank Skate Park, otherwise known as the Undercroft, is the beating heart of this economy, and the removal of it has sparked much controversy.<br />
