New rink at Havant
« on: October 03, 2019, 01:16:11 PM »
Apparently the local council has approved a dual pad ice rink at Havant, near Portsmouth. According to my source, who will remain anonymous, primarily if not wholly because I can't remember who it was, there will be two pads. One pad will have an inner area for figure skating, and an outer area for speed skating. The other pad will be for public skating and hockey. I can't find any official documents online to confirm it.

Oh my!  <head explodes>
Returned to the ice in Sept 2017 after a major leg injury in 1999. Skating in Graf Dance boots and MK Dance blades. It's still a bit slippery...

That's odd since planning applications need to be viewable by the public.

Also while ice rinks are nice :-) it could be being used as a planning application 'sweetener' to get houses built say.

Officially it's referred to as a 'Section 106 Agreement' -> http://www.legislation.gov.uk/ukpga/1990/8/section/106
Sliding on frozen water is the easy part of ice skating.

Slightly OT but plans for Lee Valley are still alive: https://londonist.com/london/sport/lee-valley-ice-centre-redevelopment-twin-ice-rinks


Hope the Havant plans come to pass
