Members of a user group trying to find a potential location for a new BMX/ skate park in Sudbury held an engagement event yesterday.

Babergh District Council is working with the Make A Difference group, members of the public keen to form a user group and Sudbury Town Council in a bid to identify a site and bring forward a ramp park in the town to be used by BMX, scooter and skateboard enthusiasts.

The council had been contacted by various groups in the town to find out just how a new facility could be bought to life and an open meeting was held earlier this year to work out a way forward.

Babergh officers and councillors were available to speak to residents alongside representatives from the user group.

People were asked to select their favoured location from a number of options, the type of facility they would like to see, as well as who would use the facility.

All feedback received will be used to inform the next steps of the project.

You can still respond to the formal consultation. Responses can be posted until May 2, online at www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/SudburySkatePark.

People can also fill in physical questionnaires by picking them up at Sudbury Town Council offices, Eden’s Project and the Kingfisher Leisure Centre reception.

All of the information on the project and the consultation is available on www.babergh.gov.uk/leisure-and-culture/playgrounds-and-playing-fields/sudbury-skate-park/.

Sudbury Town Council has agreed a site by Woodhall Business Park, which is owned by the council, can still be used for a skate park if chosen.
