BATHURST Regional Council is seeking community input as it plans for an extension to the city’s skate park.
The NSW Government announced $300,000 in funding in October for the project and council has commissioned the company Convic to design the extension.
Mayor Graeme Hanger said the extension will provide more skate park features that will cater to all skill levels and skate park riding disciplines, including beginners and intermediate levels.
“The extension to the skate park will provide more opportunities for young people of differing skill levels to use the facility,” he said.
A workshop was held on October 25 where the community was invited to have a say on what they would like included in the skate park extension and a draft concept design has since been developed based on the outcomes of the workshop.
Council is now asking for public input on the draft concept design.
Feedback from the online consultation process will be considered before a detailed design is completed, according to council.
It is anticipated that tenders will be called at the beginning of the new financial year for the construction of the skate park extension.
Those who want to have their say on the Bathurst Skate Park extension are asked to visit yoursay.bathurst.nsw.gov.au and complete the survey on the concept design.
In addition, a written submission can be sent to the General Manager, PMB 17, Bathurst, NSW, 2795.
Comments on the draft plan will be received up until January 11, 2019, according to council.
