Consultation for Skatepark Launched

Bude-Stratton Town Council Launches Skatepark Community Consultation

Bude-Stratton Town Council is excited to announce the launch of a comprehensive consultation process for the redesign of Bude’s skatepark. The council is calling on the community to participate both online and in person to help shape the future of this vital recreational facility.

The online consultation portal is now live, providing residents with an immersive experience to explore detailed views of the innovative skatepark designs. This digital platform underscores the council’s commitment to involving the community in every step of the design process. Residents can access the portal at to offer their feedback and ideas.

In addition to the online platform, the council is hosting an in-person consultation event on Saturday 4th May, from 12pm to 4pm at the Parkhouse Centre in Bude. This event will allow residents to view the skatepark designs firsthand, meet the project team and directly contribute to the final outcomes.

Mayor Mike Dawe, representing Bude-Stratton Town Council, expressed his enthusiasm for the dual consultation approach: “This consultation phase, both online and at the Parkhouse Centre, marks a crucial step in the development of our skatepark. Community involvement is key in shaping spaces that reflect the spirit and needs of Bude. We value the opinions and ideas of our residents and are committed to integrating them into the final design.”

The council hopes that by collaborating closely with the community, the redeveloped skatepark will meet the diverse needs and preferences of its users, aligning with community aspirations and usage patterns.

Residents are encouraged to participate in both the online portal and the in-person event to play an active role in the development process of this important community asset.
