Exciting news: the planning application for Perranporth’s new skate park is now officially underway! Delivering two purpose-built riding spaces for local skaters, scooter riders, roller bladers, BMX’ers and other wheeled sports users, this scheme is set to be the central feature of a wonderful new community recreation space in Ponsmere Valley.
With the planning and design work for the skate facility now complete, it’s now time for you, our great community, to lend your support and help make this happen.
The smooth concrete construction is designed to optimise the usability of the park for riders whilst being incredibly quiet when in use.
But if you support this scheme please don’t keep quiet! Please head over to Cornwall Council’s Online Planning Portal where you can make a comment in support of the application, telling Cornwall Council’s planners why this will be so beneficial to the local community.

You can also write a comment by email, quoting the planning application number PA20/00227. Always mark whether you SUPPORT or OBJECT to the application to avoid confusion.

Please contact us via Facebook, in person on via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This planning application is expected to be decided over the next 8-12 weeks, after which construction will commence as soon as possible. Funds for this project have already been allocated by the parish, with further contributions coming in from grant sources.
As reported previously, the skate park is only the first part of what the Parish Council aims to deliver in Ponsmere Valley. The incredible response to our December consultation event raised lots of ideas from the community about new children’s play equipment, picnic areas, running paths and other great recreational facilities that can bring all ages together in an active, outdoor setting.
The council will be evaluating and developing these ideas (as well as the ongoing plans for Bolenna Park) whilst the skate facilities are progressing through the planning stages. Further information will follow on these plans in due course, so watch this space!The council will be evaluating and developing these ideas (as well as the ongoing plans for Bolenna Park) whilst the skate facilities are progressing through the planning stages.
