Southbank Skate Park ClosureHave you heard about the plans to close the skatepark in the undercrofts of the Southbank Centre under the Queen Elizabeth Hall? This is an area that should be of interest to the London graffiti, hop hop and skater scenes. A campaign is up and running and there is an online petition that closes on 28 May. It has already gathered 3952 signatures.

Here's the petition link:


This is their blurb:

Since the early seventies ‘the Undercroft’ (the sheltered area beneath the Queen Elizabeth Hall on London’s Southbank) has served as the home of the skateboarding community in the UK. It’s an open public-space that has brought together thousands of young people, from various backgrounds, over the last 35 years to form a harmonious and positive community.

This type of positive and ‘unorganised’ activity for young people is very rarely seen elsewhere in the UK today… However the area is now being rapidly redeveloped and the future of ‘the Undercroft’ is uncertain. Already a large part has been partitioned off behind large wooden hoardings. Please join us in petitioning the government to guarantee that the site is:

(A) returned to its previous state (allowing the general public and skateboarders open access to the full area), and
(B) officially protected and preserved for future generations of the skateboard community to use.
