The skate park at King George V Recreation Ground in Hitchin is set for a refurbishment, with North Herts Council asking the public to give their views.

The refurbishment will be conducted with the help of landscape architects at Groundwork East, and the council are especially keen to hear from younger people.

If you want to contribute, you can have your say in person at the park on Monday, May 22, between 3pm and 6pm. Those who can't attend are invited to complete an online survey by June 4.

The council are also planning to create a 'design team' of interested local users, based on contact details provided by those who fill out the survey. You can upload example images of elements you would like to see included in the final design.

Cllr Steve Jarvis, executive member for environment and leisure, said: "This is a great opportunity for local people who use the skate park to tell us how they want us to refurbish and expand the current skate provision at King George's.

"We particularly want young people to get involved and have their say."

Catherine Browne, landscape architect at Groundwork East, added: "We’d like to understand what local skaters want, and perhaps come up with a 'wish list'.

"We’ll then look to see what we can do with the budget available and tender an expert contractor to make the changes."
