Hope for news on skate park
A BIKE shop has backed plans for a new skate park which teenagers hope will take shape this year.
Chalfont St Peter group CSP All Wheels applied to Biffa Award for £40,000 to create a facility where they can practice skating and biking. The team hope to receive some news on the application by the end of the month. Chiltern Bike Barn has also pledged its support and will look at potential sponsors once work for the project begins.
The plan to current facilities expand
– a halfpipe and ramps – at Mill Meadow, in Gravel Hill, has support from across the community. The parish council, Chalfont St Peter Youth Centre and parents have backed the scheme.
The youth centre was awarded up to £2,000 for the project at a county council community funding meeting in May. The parish council has also agreed to contribute £20,000. Young skaters have suggested designs and asked villagers to raise any concerns about the plans. AN ACTION group involving a cross-section of the community is being planned to combat a village’s parking problems.
Chalfont St Peter Parish Councillor Ken Adams has written to traders, a secondary school and other community representatives to create a parking committee.
The new team will be a branch of the Community Safety Group and help fight looming parking uncertainties in the village,
