The Wave consultation

Research was recently undertaken to find out what the public would like to see at Maryport’s Wave Centre.

Telephone, web and stakeholder surveys were carried out to gauge opinion on what kind of facilities locals and users wanted to see developed there. One such concept being explored through the survey was that of an Adventure Play/Youth Activity Centre.

Summary

  • Eight out of ten respondents or more stated that Activities for children (85%) and Youth based activities (80%) were Important or Very Important to develop at the Wave Centre.
  • Half of the respondents or more stated that they would like to hear about developments via Newspapers (55%), Website (55%), and Email (50%). Other suggestions for communications included text messages and social media.
  • Eight out of ten respondents (80%) felt that the ‘Clip n Climb’ concept was a suitable development for the Wave Centre.
  • Almost two thirds of respondents (65%) stated they would be Somewhat likely (10%) or Very likely (55%) to use these facilities.
  • Respondents who indicated that they would not be likely to use the facilities were asked for their reasons.  Respondents being too old, having no children, or no children of a suitable age, were the main reasons for being unlikely to use the ‘Clip n Climb’ facilities.
  • Respondents who stated they were likely to use the facilities were also asked for their reasons.  Respondents felt the ‘Clip n Climb’ facility would provide something new to the area and provide safe activities for children and adults.
  • Respondents were asked for any additional comments regarding the ‘Clip n Climb’ concept.  These comments were generally very supportive of the concept, but there were a number of comments related to the importance of making these facilities affordable.

Respondents included four School and Education providers, three Youth organisations and groups, three respondents from Local councils, two Tourism groups, and one Corporate user and booker.  Other respondents included NHS, MFL Blues Festival, Voluntary Organisation Cumbria CVS, Sellafield, Charity, Not for profit organisation, and Social Enterprise.
