Friends of Stockwell Skatepark have been campaigning for a resurface since 2016, and have already secured £100,000 from Network homes. We were assured that the rest of the budget needed was earmarked for the skatepark. However the process is not moving and no date is currently set for the work that has been agreed. With Stockwell skatepark such a well used and loved facility, and skateboarding now an Olympic sport, we call on Lambeth Parks department to keep to their word and complete the resurface the park needs, to a high standard.

I acknowledge receipt of your petition regarding improvements to
Stockwell Skate Park and we acknowledge the fact that the skatepark
is a well-loved local facility. This is a long-running capital
project which has been delayed due to the successful contractor
withdrawing from the process. The price submitted by the only
alternative contractor our capital team were able to secure was
much higher than the secured budget. The funding balance has been
allocated from within the new parks capital budget and a decision
report to release the funding is currently working through the
internal approval process. As soon as the report is approved we
will be able to commence with the works to refurbish the entire
site. The Friends will be kept up to date by our capital works
