Save Great Notley Skatepark

We have campaigned to create a skate park in Great Notley.  We currently only have a metal half pipe and it has never been maintained by the council and is in poor condition.  The Parish Council and Groundwork have come up with a scheme that seeks to remove it and not replace the skate facilities.

Their plan and survey allow no option for the existing skate park and instead want to replace it with an area of low activity, seating and a Bluetooth pod for connecting phones and tablets. The existing skate ramp needs to be replaced and improved upon and not removed.

It was fought for by local residents and teenagers and is not in the interest of those active young people to loose their facility.

At a time when childhood obesity and type 2 diabetes are on the increase it is a poor decision to take away and not replace an active sports facility in 2017.  Details of this poorly thought out scheme are on the link below.  It is worth noting that the picture no.3 is the proposed replacement of the skate ramp.  Anyone that does skate, ride a scooter or BMX knows that it is unusable.

Pleae click on the link and also if you live locally you can fill in the survey and make your feelings known about the loss of this facility.
