Make sure your views are heard - send in the Council questionnaire by 31st March

By Peter Crowhurst, NLCA Vice-Chair

Take part in the consultation

North Laine residents should have received a questionnaire from the Council as part of the consultation process on what should happen to The Level. You are urged to consider the two options and give the Council your views.

The two options differ in the siting of the skate park. Option one keeps the skate park in the southern part of The Level whilst option two places the skate park north of Rose Walk. The siting of the skate park has generated a good deal of debate among users of the Park.

Some of the issues

The issues that have been raised by campaigners include:

The moving of the skate park to the north of the Rose Walk is an unacceptable loss of green space.

There is no loss of green space as the present gravelled area is going to revert to grass.

The town needs a proper skate park for its youngsters.

The Level is not the right location for a skate park of the proposed size.

The moving of the skate park will mean that the sensory gardens and water fountains keep true to the original concept.

A skate park north of the Rose Walk cannot fail but be an eyesore for people on the green area.

The NLCA does not have a view on this but encourages all residents to consider the options and take part in the consultation.
