We asked

For comments on the proposals for the refurbishment of the existing skate park at Western Park and to vote for a preferred design

You said

6 votes were recived with 4 comments on the proposals. Four votes were cast for option A and two votes received for option B

We did

Although only 6 votes were received the consulation sparked a lively debate on Facebook. Therefore a decision was made to carry out further consulation with skaters face to face at other skate parks in the city. This consulation is on-going and the skate park design will be revised in light of feedback received.


The city council is inviting users of the skate park at Western Park to have an input into its re-development.

Why we are consulting

Groundwork has secured funding through the Transform Your Patch initiative and the city council is providing match funding.

Two designs have been produced and skate park users are being asked for their views.
Feedback from skate park users will be used to help identify the preferred option.
