Questions from Members of the Public pdf icon PDF 294 KB

To receive and answer and questions from the public.

(Questions must be received in writing by Democratic Services – democracy@winchester.gov.uk – no later than noon on Wednesday 16 February 2022)

Minutes:

Three written questions had been received from members of the public, who were in attendance at the meeting to present their questions, along with associated supplementary questions. The questions and response were subsequently set out on the council’s website.

 

5.

To receive petitions

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 16, a petition was submitted by ‘Save Our Skatepark in Winchester River Park’ with 2, 265 signatures.

 

Minutes:

In accordance with Council Procedure Rule 16, a petition was submitted by ’Save Our Skate Park in Winchester River Park’.  The details of the petition are set out on the agenda.

 

The organiser of the petition was unable to attend the meeting and Councillor Learney (Cabinet Member for Housing and Asset Management) responded to the matters in the petition and in summary, raised the following points:

 

·         The skate park was used by a community of young people from across the district and beyond.

·         A recent meeting with skate park users had discussed proposals to integrate the skate park with the School of Art’s new facilities, which were seen as complementary.

·         Having taken account of public feedback, the proposed arrangements with Southampton University now included provision for the council to take a leaseback of the skate park.  This would secure the continuation of the skate park under the council’s management  

 

Council then proceeded to debate the petition and matters therein and in summary, the following matters were raised:

 

·         The skate park first opened in 2014 and the council had worked closely with relevant groups regarding its design and for the upgrade of some other facilities.  The announcement by the cabinet member provided reassurance that the council remained committed to the skate park.

·         The petitioners had highlighted one of Winchester’s best community facilities and it served users across a wide range of ages and was a free and accessible space and provided much social value. Existing language in the heads of terms for the lease of the site could subjectively have indicated some potential risk to the skate park and the proposals announced by the cabinet member and the Leader therefore provided guarantees for its future.

·         The debate regarding the skate park had been ‘mixed up’ due to a lack of openness by the university regarding its intention for the site, and a lack of urgency by the council for public consultation regarding the proposals.

·         Skate boarding was a valuable part of our culture and young people need more outdoor recreational facilities.  A new skate park at King George V recreation ground was being designed in conjunction with users and would not lessen the need for the facility at River Park.

·         The detail within the leaseback arrangements needed to be carefully checked.

 

At conclusion of debate, Councillor Learney once again thanked the petitioners for bringing the matter forward and reiterated that the council would continue to retain full control of the skate park at the River Park site as a result of changes to the heads of terms, as well as supporting the expansion of skate parks elsewhere in the district.

 

RESOLVED:

 

That the petitioner be thanked for bringing the matter forward and that the petition be further considered at Cabinet on 9 March 2022 alongside the land transaction report for the River Park Leisure Centre site.
