2,200 Responses So Far To Skate Park Survey

There have been 2,200 responses so far to the survey on where to build Jersey's main skatepark.

The choices are the Les Quennevais Sports Centre and South Hill Gardens.

Les Quennevais was chosen as the preferred site last January following an extensive consultation.

But a new area of South Hill was identified last summer, which the Jersey Skateparks Association says it had to look at further because of their desire to have a park in town.

The South Hill Gardens site.

The online survey closes at midnight tonight, but hard copies of surveys will be accepted by post until the end of tomorrow (26 January).

Results will be published this Friday (29 January).

Some interested parties have expressed concerns about the survey to politicians and Channel 103, especially that it lacks detail on the South Hill site.

The former Assistant Minister with responsibility for Sport, Senator Steve Pallett, has lodged a proposition to confirm Les Quennevais as the main site and to lodge a planning application by 26 February.
