Skate Park for Bradford On Avon
The only existing set of skate ramps in BOA (at Poulton Park) is soon to be removed, and is currently unusable and unsafe. This petition requests that Bradford On Avon Town Councillors work with Wiltshire Council to build a skate park to replace this lost resource.
Why is this important?
Skateboarding, scootering and associated activities are hugely popular with young people. There is a high demand for somewhere safe and exciting in the town for skaters to use. At present, most skaters use the station car park. They deserve something better. There is a great deal of evidence to suggest that provision of resources like skate parks greatly reduces youth crime and unrest, which benefits the local community and contributes to making towns more vibrant places to live.
How it will be delivered
The petition will be delivered to Bradford On Avon Town Councillors. There are Council meetings on 17th and 23rd May relevant to this campaign, so the petition will also be presented at these.
