Kaipātiki Local Board Community Forum

 

The Kaipātiki Local Board holds two meetings a month – a business meeting for Council staff to present reports and a Community Forum meeting to enable greater community input.

 

The Kaipātiki Local Board’s Community Forum meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of every month at 6:00 pm. These meetings enable the community to engage with the board via deputations, public forum, petitions, and reports from community and volunteer groups, with speakers allowed more time than is possible at ordinary business meetings. Community Forum will operate as a normal business meeting, with agendas and minutes published and resolutions passed.

 

Different ways to present to the Kaipātiki Local Board:

REPORT TO:                   Kaipatiki Local Board

_____________________________________________________________________________

 

Marlborough Park  and Birkenhead  - Kaipatiki Skateboarding Facilities;

 

THEIR  HISTORY:

 

 

 

Birkenhead:

 

The existing facility (BSP SK8 Park) was built in 1959, as the local skating rink and sited next to Birkenhead War Memorial Hall ( this was renamed the Birkenhead Recreation Centre) .   A lease to the Birkenhead Amateur Roller Skating Club was signed in 1972.  Some years later ` roller skating ` lost its popularity to make way for ` skateboarding`  this then became evident for the need to look at a redevelopment of this site. Birkenhead Skate Park was refurbished from a local skating rink to a ply moulded skate park of substantial ramps and curves.  1991 The  Opening Day was a huge success with very large numbers of youth and families attending.......alongside the former Recreation Centres activities; one month later the complaints started to arrive from local and immediate residents especially one in particular who at that time had three children under five at this time. ( John Court Street ) This lead to these ramps being demolished and replaced with concrete.

 

 

Northcote:

 

1988 – Northcote Borough built a SK8 The Vert Ramp on the rear site of the local shopping centre,  this action caused concern in neighbourhood and it was later relocated after considerable consultation  with the local neighbourhood in 1990 ( Stafford Park )  in 2013, this was  demolished  as it was deteriorating and not  now used.

 

 

 

 

 

Glenfield:

 

Marlborough Park Skate Park was built after consideration by many local Skateboarders and their peers, and support through the former Glenfield Community Board  to facilitate the funds from the former  NSCC. This facilitated the construction of the plans presented by Jason Parks ( Premium Skateboarding ) in or around 2003/2004 .   This park has been one our most popular parks,  for all ages and since  completion this SK8 Park has been  well used  and respected by the users,  and has not caused any major concerns in the community.   It is a park where the older youth look after the younger kid,  and support them on their journey in their chosen active sport.   But as you will hear its maintenance levels do  not live up to the  level of use that it receives by the local skateboarding/scooting youth.

 

 

Finally, in respect of Sport,   Skateboarding is now starting to be recognised as a key active sport.

 

Now, in the eyes of a skater, what is skateboarding? Freedom, a hobby, a sport, a community, a shared interest. It’s amazing the feeling you can get from a piece of wood with wheel on it. If you couldn’t tell already, I am a skateboarder myself, and I have many friends who skateboard and they have many friends who skateboard as well. There has been this label put on all skateboarders as being trouble makers and outlaws of society. It is this untrue stereotype that makes stores and businesses put up three to four signs that proclaim in bold letters and exclamation points “No Skateboarding!” 

I am not part of a “skateboard gang”, I enjoy other sports as well, but, skateboarding is my favorite sport. It is my sport, my hobby, and even my mode of transportation. I don’t even own a bicycle any more, I skateboard everywhere. I love everything about it…except the stereotypes. I have been skateboarding since I was 3-years-old and all I have to say about skating is…thank you. I’m fifteen now and skateboarding is what has shaped me into the young man I am today. It taught me to always get up after I fall, to never give up, to stick with something until I get it down and to be proud of what I have accomplished. 

When I was little I would go to the skate park with my  skateboard and try to do the little things I knew how to do. I was this little kid skating around and sometimes accidentally getting in the way of all these bigger kids. Not once did any of these kids yell at me to get out of the way or say anything rude to me at all. In fact, some of these kids even took some of their own time to give me tips and show me how 
to do certain tricks that I was having trouble with. 

So next time you see a skateboarder, don’t think of him as a kid with nothing better to do, think of him as a kid who is enjoying his favorite sport…skateboarding.



 

 

 

 

Background Kaipatiki Skateboarding in Community;

 

1995/2201

 

Skate Boarding was alive and well again,  from the earlier 1970`s  days where, bowls were the normal place of this sport.        Acknowledging at the time that former North Shore City Council injects some $3.2 million + into their sports field programme,  this did not address the opportunity for our young people to participate in  their choice of sport rather than the structured elements of a sports field.  At this time there was no planning being undertaken for the informal unstructured sport, that young people were attracted to. 

 

Nothing has changed today in 2015.

 

Planning for their facilities must be one of meaningful and encouragement,  from 1995 to 2009 our local young skateboarders, with the Trust support  presented themselves on a regular basis to the former NSCC Council Annual Plan hearings, and the Birkenhead Northcote Community Board  to gain support and direction for the increase their much needed facilities for their sport of choice.

 

 From these presentation  and council officers support,  the former NSCC  approved  ( asked for $30K) 15K to be  made available for the improvements of the Birkenhead Skate Park redevelopment commencing  in July 1998.     The local lead group of young people lead  the complete redesign of the upgrade of this facility, from ply to concrete,  with the provided council contractor.  Phase two of the development of this site began. ( Facility changed from plywood to concrete ramps to decrease any future large maintenance budgets having to be sought but rather redevelopment funding to increase the sites potential)

 

Also at this time the Trust were presenting documentation taken from the past five years of involvement with the SK8 Park and its developments, to and with appropriate former  council officers  and increasing their knowledge of the needs of the skateboarder.   The Trust wanted policy and direction from council which would support increased  SK8 facilities through the city.  The former r Birkenhead Northcote Community Board  members continued to meet with the lead group of  the ` Skate Boarding  development team `  to support the development of increased facilities in the city and support the group to attend each and every Annual Plan to present a well developed plan of action for the council in respect of teenage facilities which suit the unstructured users.      

 

Further development ( Phase three ) were presented and former NSCC  provided another $20K to continue the redevelopment of the BSP SK8 Park.  Stafford Park SK8 Ramp was also given consideration at this time for an upgrade and the former  BN Community Board provided the KCFT with funds of (3K)  the  Lion Foundation provided (5K)  Councils Parks Department (5K)  to upgrade the Stafford Park SK8 Ramp, which was undertaken by a local contractor  engaged by the KCFT on behalf of NSCC. . 

 

At this time our local youth  in consultation with the local community of Beach Haven,  identified the need for a SK8 facility for this area, and set about investigating suitable sites and opportunities for this to happen.  Reporting back  to the former BN Community Board the young people were disappointed to hear that the local residents had put together a petition to stop any progress on installation of a SK8 Park in Beach Haven.   The residents presented themselves to the former  BN Community Board and this resulted in a lack of support for installing a SK8 park facility within that area.   Today we will hear many young people wishing for a SK8 Park in that area.

 

Also at around this time after many years of presenting to the former North Shore City Council,  the Youth Destinations Facility Development fund was established at first some $400K + was placed within this budget for the development of new and existing sites.   Congratulations were given to the Birkenhead SK8 Park team for their persistent presentations to both community board and council.    From hereon in,  there have been some six sites developed within the city.  Although noting that today that Youth Facility budget does not exist these builds are drawn up within the Parks Department Plans were under the Youth Destination Plan for Parks inclusions.

 

The ``Skateboarding User Group `` would like to have the Kaipatiki Local Board place some priorities on these two facilities in Kaipatiki so that they, and their peers can have facilities to perform their skills as does any other sport.

 

 

Their requests are:

 

 

Marlborough SK8 and BSP, needs some minor maintenance issues attended to. 

 

Marlborough SK8  does need to be considered for increased footprint to allow it be the premium SK8 space for our youth.
