Have your say on the redevelopment of the Skatepark in Selby
A consultation event will be held to help finalise the plans for the redevelopment of the outdoor skatepark in Selby.
On Wednesday 15 February at 5.30pm, skatepark users and other interested parties are being welcomed to a drop in consultation event at the skatepark at Selby Leisure Centre.
At the event the skatepark design contractors (from Bendcrete Leisure) will be on hand to discuss in detail their initial designs to extend and improve the skatepark, listen to suggestions and comments from skatepark users and agree the final project design.
The improvement project includes plans to remove the fencing around the skatepark, improve the skatepark itself and install picnic benches nearby. The extended skatepark will include a quarter pipe with pocket, extended quarter pipe, ledges and grind rails.
The £150,000 project is part of the leader of Selby District Council, Cllr Mark Crane’s long-standing commitment to ensure the outdoor facility is secured and improved for future generations.
He said: “Many years ago, I made a commitment that this facility would be improved and this event is a chance for the skatepark users to come along and find out more about our initial proposals.
“Importantly at this event we’ll be able to talk through in detail what we’ve got in our proposals but also get direct feedback from those at the event so we can make sure that the final designs for the skatepark deliver what the users need to be there.”
Anyone who is unable to attend the event can also email [email protected] ahead of the event to share their views.
Further details about the final plans will be released before construction works begins later this year.
