Lift the Ban on Skateboarding in Kettering

Lift the Ban on Skateboarding in Kettering

When the PSPO is reviewed remove the ban on skateboarding in the Marketplace in Kettering

Why is this important?

The current ban unfairly discriminates against skateboarders.
The ban was poorly thought out in order to fix an issue that didn't and doesn't exist.
Furthermore the signage for the ban
- which is in two very small locations within the town centre - has been placed incorrectly all over the town, effectively banning the hobby from the entire town.
Skateboarding is an eviromently friendly means of transport and has recently become an Olympic sport.
The ban is unfair and needs to be lifted
