Unfortunately, despite numerous costly repairs over the past couple of years, it was necessary to decommission the Skate Ramp at Jubilee Fields around the Easter of 2021. Last autumn, the Parish Council went out for consultation and asked for users' help with choosing a replacement.
As residents may remember, a meeting was held on site in the summer of 2018 with users, who were invited to come up with concept design of what they would like to see in the future. This design was then sent to professional skatepark designers who came up with six possible designs, displayed below. The new facility will be larger than the previous facility (pictured above left), utilising the current adjoining grassed areas. The ramps will still be wooden, but the framework may be steel rather than wood.
A design was chosen and the Council is still waiting for a quotation from the preferred supplier. If you have any questions about this project, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org
