What is happening about Sandy Skate Park?
Date Added: 03/05/2013
In the summer of 2012 most of the equipment in Sandy Skate Park at Sunderland Road Recreation Ground was removed as it was not safe. The equipment belonged to Sandy Skate Park Association, a charitable trust which secured the initial funding for the skate park equipment and was responsible for its maintenance.
In April 2012 Sandy Town Council agreed to lease the equipment from the charity and take over responsibility for its maintenance at public expense. Unfortunately several ramps were beyond repair and there was no alternative but to remove them. Since then the Skate Park Association has not come to the Town Council with any plans about the future of their remaining equipment or the replacement of the old equipment.
One of the Council's goals for the coming year is to review this issue and take some action.Would you like to see Sandy Skate Park equipment replaced? Should the Town Council contrubute to replacement of the equipment from tax payers money? Tell us what you think.
