Chesterton recreation ground wheeled-sports facility consultation

In 2017, councillors approved the use of Section 106 developer contributions for a new wheeled-sports facility on Chesterton recreation ground.

We consulted on proposals in 2019. Your responses suggested support for the proposal, and identified some opportunities for improvement. We have revised the proposals to address these.

The proposed facility is aimed at young people aged 4 to 14. It comprises a continuous circuit of turns and jumps, to appeal to a variety of wheeled-sports users including BMX and mountain bikes, skateboards and scooters, and roller skates.

It’s aimed at beginners and users of intermediate skill, with the intention that they can graduate to using other, more challenging facilities elsewhere in Cambridge.

Have your say

The proposed track design and options are presented on our online survey. Please let us know what you think.

The consultation is open until 11.59pm on 17 January 2021.

Next steps

After the consultation we will gather all of your feedback and use it to inform any necessary and reasonable alterations to the design, to ensure we can provide the best possible facility for the local and wider community.
