In a recent letter to the Argus The Hon. Sec. of the Regency Society reports the objections of its Trustees to siting a new Skate Park at the north end of the level:-
"It is important that our green spaces serve all sectors of the community and this is one of very few that serves the younger members of society. The wider community is apparently not in favour of moving the skate park, and neither are the Friends of the Level, so it’s hard to understand why council officers persist with proposals to move it.
If the skate park is moved, the siting of funfairs and other temporary and Brighton Festival and Fringe events will be compromised. The relative peace of the grassed area where families and groups can sit and enjoy the sunshine in the city centre will be fundamentally changed."
Our main objection, however, is that, in the heart of one of our major conservation areas – that is an important historic piece of urban landscape – its character would inevitably be damaged by inserting fences, concrete ramps and other structures, which will attract graffiti."
