As you know the council had a public consultation asking if you agreed they should criminalize skateboarding/bmxing/car clubs along with lots of other things in Kettering Town Centre. 75 % of the people that filled in the councils form were in favour of the skateboarders. Maybe the council were unhappy with the first results?
The form below was in the council’s reception and seems to us to encourage people to comment negatively about skateboarders what do you think…
If would be great if as many people as possible filled in the form.
We created an online version: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/2LSMHC7
Maybe we should make our own form? With questions like “Do car parking charges put you off shopping in Kettering”? I wonder how many people would fill it in then?
We have also printed some out and put them on the side near the magazines in Chopper or could print a pdf version (Download Here) and send it to your local councillor by email a list of councillors can be found here: http://www.kettering.gov.uk/councillors/name
More about the PSPO
We are still waiting to find out the councils final decision about the PSPO and if skateboarding in the town centre will become a criminal offence. This will be decided at an executive meeting which anybody can attend, as many people as possible would be really helpful! We are yet to be given the date as it keeps getting cancelled and the latest update is January. But as soon as we find out we will let you all know.
