Chelmsford City needs a Youth Zone

I was lucky enough to be invited to the onside youth zone in barking, with some city councillors..and our mp.this is something the young people in our city need, they are in desperate need of such a facility, to help combat anti-social behaviour and gang and knife crime and also to give them a sense of belonging which is needed. There is nothing for 11 to 17 year olds here, and the youth zone is such an amazing place. Riverside have put a curfew on young  members using the gym, the youth zone has its own gym. A yearly membership of just 5 pounds, and 50p every attendance this could be from 10am till 10pm weekends and every evening throughout the week. The youth zone has the following, sport hall, state of the art gym, recording studios, boxing gym with ring, 3g football pitch! Box track and ramps, dance studio, kitchen where cooking classes are held, sensory rooms, homework rooms, art rooms, climbing wall. Just to give you a rough idea.
These young people are our future, we need to act now....before it’s too late
