Maintenance of Chesterfield Skatepark

carry out minor maintenance of Chesterfield skatepark.

The lights that were installed a few years ago have all since gone past their life span and need new bulbs, 8 in total. We are also in favour of a timer for the lights to turn off at midnight if it was to prolong the life of the bulbs. Its also going to be dark at 4pm meaning no one will be able to use the facility after work.

A new bin would be massively appreciated. The current bin has corroded through its own base and no longer fixed to the floor. As well its too small, with skateboarding becoming more popular there's more litter. That being said, a bench or a seating area for parents would be beneficial as parents have a tendency to stand/sit in the way unintentionally.

Finally there is some metal coping that needs replacing on one of the blocks. This block has been ground on a daily basis ever since it opened in 2007 and it needs replacing. Its become so sharp and dented it almost un-skateable.

Skateboarding is on the rise and we'd really appreciate it if the council could help and repair Chesterfield Skatepark. It doesn't deserve being neglected, it probably wasn't cheap to build.

On reaching 1000 signatures a full council debate will be held.
