Peter Gould – District Councillor
At it’s meeting on the 18th September the Council agreed to investigate the cost of fencing off the Skate Park at the Community Centre in Eye. Until this time the park will remain closed, due to the anti-social behaviour and vandalism which had taken place earlier in the summer. There was a high public turn out at the Council meeting. Including users of the park, the Community Centre and representatives of the Forge Church who offer open access youth provision called “The Base” every other Friday.
Following the council meeting it was felt by the Chair of the Environment Meeting Cllr Mike Smith that further discussion about the skate parks future was required urgently. An Extra Ordinary Meeting of the Environment Meeting was called for Friday 20th September at 7:00 pm in the Town Hall. The outcome from the meeting was to keep the skate park closed until a deep cleanse could be carried out to remove offensive graffiti and to clean the site to ensure that it is safe to be used. The deep clean is scheduled for Saturday 28th September and a judgement will be made after the cleaning is complete as to whether the skate park is safe to re-open.
