Pleasant, Sumner, Lyttelton, Diamond Harbour, Governors Bay, Akaroa Skate park may be rolling by July • By Caitlin Miles A TEMPORARY skate park could be operating in Sumner in several weeks. Sumner Green and Skate Group member Kimberley Mossman told a public meeting last week that it is working with the city council to find a suitable place for the temporary skate ramp in time for the school holidays in July. The announcement was met with excitement and clapping from the audience. Ms Mossman said the news was exciting for people as the skate ramp was “much loved” and “hugely missed”. The temporary skate ramp was located at 36 Wakefield Ave, Kimberley Mossman but was shut down on February 10 when the city council ran noise tests and found it failed to comply with the city plan’s noise standards. But now the group is working with the city council to find a place to put the ramp while plans for a more permanent structure are put together. The group is currently in the process of working with the city council to create a feasibility study to identify where a skate park and community green space would best be suited. The study will involve looking at locations and talking to people from Ferrymead through to Sumner about the best place for a skate park. At the meeting, Ms Mossman said she knew it wasn’t good news for everyone, but they hoped to meet most of the community’s needs if they could. HAVE YOUR SAY: Where do you think the temporary skate park should go? Where should a community green space go?
