Wicklow Fine Gael Minister Simon Harris TD received an update from Wicklow County Council regarding the campaign to provide a skate park in Kilcoole.
Minister Harris said: “I have raised the Wicklow County Council the need for a skate park to be installed in the Kilcoole area. The issue was highlighted by Temple Carrig student Jake Mitchell who has led a campaign to secure a safe space in the community for scooter enthusiasts engage in their hobby.
The previous proposal for a skate park focussed on land adjacent to the Little Tern Playground. Greystones Municipal District Council have advised after engineers examining it that the site in question would be too restricted to build such a facility.
The Council are now examining a number of alternative locations in Kilcoole for the facility and are to report back.
“It is great to see young people campaigning for better facilities in their community and they can continue to count on my full support”, Minister Harris concluded.
