An online petition aims to secure a much-needed revamp for Buckingham's skate park.

The petition was launched by Buckingham town councillor Jon Harvey, in a bid to speed up the redesign and renewal of the Buckingham skate park for young people.

Available to sign on the Buckinghamshire Council website, the petition says: "There is dedicated money available (from housing developers / s106) and it is NOW time this money was spent.

"The children and young people of Buckingham and beyond greatly value this facility but are keen to see it being updated and made even better than it already is.

"Every month and year that has gone by has deprived young people of the pleasure and exercise that a renewed skate park would bring. The time is NOW to get on with the job!

"We implore the Buckinghamshire Council to work with the young people, their parents and carers, youth services, the town council and others to shape what happens next. And for this to be done over the remaining part of 2020 such that a renewed park can be installed by the spring of next year (2021)."

The e-petition, which runs until October 9, has so far gathered 120 signatures.
