Replace the Skatepark

The Skatepark in Lake Meadows needs replacing. 

The opportunities and facilities for young people in this town have been consistently underfunded. In 2019, local campaigner and council candidate, Edward Sainsbury called for the council to 'fund/part-fund a replacement for the demolished skatepark' in Lake Meadows. 

Billericay Town Council decided that it was too expensive to maintain the upkeep for the skatepark due to some vandalism that had caused structural damage to the ramps and decided to spend money demolishing them but have not acted to replace them so far.

Basildon Council and Billericay Town Council should work together to find a way to fund a permanent, durable replacement for the skate park. The local Liberal Democrats favour a more permanent solution with a concrete park that has a wider range of beginner to advanced ramps and features for the use of young people in our town. 

Billericay's young people have seen a lack of development in facilities for them for far too long, the time to replace the skatepark is now.
