To have a skatepark built in Pencoed

This petition had 846 supporters

This petition is to show support and prove that there is a genuine local need for a concrete skatepark in Pencoed. Pencoed has very few facilities for young people to use. Since BMX, Skateboards and scooters are very popular in and around the area, a skatepark would be an excellent place for young people to improve their skills but to also create a closer community within Pencoed and nearby areas. If a skatepark were to be built, many people would travel by public transport, allowing the government and other companies to also benefit. Furthermore, the riders using the skatepark would also visit different shops to buy refreshments etc, allowing those companies to also gain from the skatepark. Having a skatepark within Pencoed would give the young people somewhere to hang out, reducing disruptions and annoyance in other areas of the town. This would allow young people to create and build friendships with others. The new skatepark will be a free-to-use, safe, inclusive and family orientated sports facility for users of all ages. Professionally designed and constructed by a company selected by the Petitioner and a varied group of riders with design input from local skatepark users. Skateparks are proven to increase health, well-being, community cohesion whilst reducing social exclusion and anti-social behaviour. The skatepark will not only benefit skatepark users, it will enhance the town and will be an asset to the whole community.
