Residents to have their say on winter ice rink

July 12, 2013 11:00 AM

Cambridge residents are being given the chance to have their say on plans for a winter ice rink on the city's Christ's Pieces.

The meeting is being organised by Cambridge City Council to make sure that all concerns are addressed before a final decision on the proposal by Ice Box is taken.

Councillor Colin Rosenstiel, who represents Market ward on the council, said: "We know that some people feel very strongly about the proposed ice rink and we want to make sure that we listen to their concerns and address them fully.

"At the same time, we know the ice rink has proved very popular in the past and that there are people, including some local residents, who don'twant to lose it.

"We find ourselves between what appear to be conflicting demands. The point of the meeting is to see if these can be reconciled, as proved possible some years ago when skateboard parks were proposed on Jesus Green and Donkey's Common."

The meeting will take place on Wednesday, July 17 between 7pm and 8pm at the Unitarian Church at 5 Emmanuel Road, Cambridge.

City council officers and ward and executive councillors will be joined by a representative from Ice Box to answer questions.
