In early 2020, we wanted to learn more about the needs of the skate community so we engaged with over 800 representatives to understand their demographics, behaviours and future needs to develop a skate plan.
Overall, this highlighted that the Wellington skate community simply want to skate more and be accepted by the public. There is a history of negative stigma around skateboarding, and we want to challenge and break down these negative stereotypes.
As a Council, we stand and support positive change to increase public acceptance and awareness of skating.
