New Wheelsports Facility

The South Area Committee approved the use of Section 106 developer contributions for a new wheelsports facility.  Cambridge City Council are interested in obtaining your views on plans to develop a wheelsports pump track facility for children on Trumpington Recreation ground.  The proposal is to install an exciting new wheelsports facility (pumptrack) offering more inclusive and dynamic play/sport aimed at the age range of 4 to 14 years inclusive.  The new facility will encourage children outside with or without their parents to participate with other children and encourage lower age lower skill level local children onto a local facility.

ChYpPs submitted the original proposal for improvements for over 8 year olds that included skate related facilities. The Children’s Engagement Officer;  suggested the main request was from the 7 to 10 year old age range so a pump track for scooters would be the most appropriate.
 
As there is going to be a new £150,000 plus skatepark built in the nearby development of (Clay Farm) it is suggested that local children/young people would be better targeted with a local pump track.  Users can then advance when they are older or with greater skills to the nearby new development areas skatepark.  

The new facility is intended to encourage children and young adults from the local area and the whole community to play and exercise on Trumpington Rec / King George V Playing Field.

Areas of the open space will remain for formal sport as well as informal play and leisure with the new facilities complimenting the recreational facilities on Trumpington Recreation Ground / King George V Playing Fields.

We would like to use this consultation document to present the design to residents in order to gauge support and seek comments on the proposals.

For the wheelsports facility please see the designs proposed within this leaflet and then give us your feedback and suggestions in the short survey that follows.

The consultation will end on Sunday 17th March 2019.
