Skateboarding will be banned at night in the area delimited by Ronda de Sant Antoni, Carrer dels Tallers, Carrer de les Ramelleres, Carrer del Pintor Foruny and Carrer de Joaquín Costa.

According to the City Police, this point is where skateboarding disturbs people most at night, with reports of noise and non-compliance with municipal regulations.

Up until the end of the month the police will be operating in an educational role, informing people who fail to comply with the decree. After that they will start fining people who fail to respect the regulations, with fines of around 460 euros.

Joint work to improve harmony in the neighbourhood

The measure was developed jointly with community representatives, local skaters’ groups and associations and the City Council. A working group enabled different issues in Plaça dels Àngels to be defined and for strategies to be developed jointly for this area in the Raval neighbourhood.
