A planning application has just been submitted which requests permission for the:
“Installation and operation of a temporary ice rink and associated structures for a Christmas Market on the tennis court and old putting green areas to be held annually for a 5 year period (2016 to January 2021) between November to January (including construction and dismantling periods) and open daily to the public until 9pm, excluding Christmas Day. To include a skate lodge/café/bar marquee, chalets/trader huts, children funfair rides, a bandstand, toilet trailers and ancillary floodlighting and festoon lighting, and perimeter fencing with pedestrian access off Grand Avenue and event traffic management measures.”
Great news for skating fans. Possibly not such good news for nearby residents?
