Bridgwater Mercury: Public meeting planned to discuss Bridgwater skate park Public meeting planned to discuss Bridgwater skate park

SKATEBOARDERS and BMXers are being asked where they think a new skate park should be built in Bridgwater.

Sedgemoor District Council is hoping to build the park, known as a wheeled sports facility, for people in the town.

It is holding a public meeting on Wednesday, September 12, to allow people to air their views on where it should go.

Teresa Harvey, from the council, said: “We know young people have views on this subject and we want to hear them. Don’t let this chance pass you by.”

The meeting will start with a presentation featuring up to five possible sites, which will be followed by a question and answer session.

A vote will then be taken – using electronic equipment – to monitor the views of those attending.

Following the meeting the council will settle on a location which it will investigate further.

Earlier this year officials at the YMCA building in Bridgwater expressed an interest in the skate park being sited there and released an artists’ impression.

It is understood the YMCA site will be one of those considered at next week’s meeting.

Ms Harvey added: “We encourage people to come along and make sure this facility is shaped by its users.”

The meeting will take place at 5.30pm at Trinity Hall in St Saviour’s Avenue, Bridgwater.

To attend email customer.services@sedgemoor.gov.uk or call 0845-4082540/01278-435435.

i think it should be by wilstock or stockmoor, they are both inbetween hamp and north petherton and both places have nothing to do, nort petherton and hamp have parks but everything is getting took down or broken it is already very dated,you also have huntworth near by. IT CERTAINLY shouldnt be put in ymca no one would want to use it and it aint very safe for younger children to use as a block of flats containing disruptive chavy youths with appauling language is right next to it!!!
