In May 2002 Perranzabuloe Parish Council held a public consultation day in the Memorial Hall to seek residents’ views on the future development of Perranporth village and identify current problems. Under the heading “Leisure”, people commonly asked for the provision of more multipurpose, structural recreational facilities, with a “Sports Centre” and a “Skateboard Park” being the most common responses.
Between 2009 and 2012, a Parish Plan was researched and published with the involvement of the Parish Council entitled “Community Plan for the Parish of Perranzabuloe 2013 to 2018”. This further explored these themes, with significant responses being gathered from the public and summarised within the document. Young people were asked to give examples of the sorts of facilities they thought were
lacking for people in the parish, and what they would like to see changed or improved.
The most popular answers were:
- Youth club/drop-in centre
- Skate park
- Sports centre
It was therefore agreed by the Parish Council to bring forward proposals for the building of a skate park in Perranporth, and it has been the policy of the Parish Council ever since to provide this facility.
