Ice Centre Redevelopment

From Stella Creasy MP's Newsletter

Lee Valley Ice Centre Feasibility Exercise- Have Your Say
Over the past 4 months, Lee Valley Park, have been looking at the feasibility of a new Ice Centre on Lea Bridge Road to replace the highly successful but ageing one (it is now over 33 years old). The first stage of the exercise involved assessing the business case for a new twin pad Centre (two rinks rather than the one at the current venue). They concluded that there is indeed a strong business case for a new venue. The second stage, which they have just concluded, has focused on identifying the optimum site for a new venue. They have now identified three possible sites for this - the existing site in Waltham Forest,  Eton Manor in the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park or the Picketts Lock site in Enfield.

They are holding a series of stakeholder/local community engagement sessions at the end of April to present the outcomes of the feasibility exercise and to explain how they have arrived at the selection of a particular site. Dates for these sessions at the current Ice Centre are as follows 
  • Wed 27th April-5-6pm Centre users, 7-8pm local community
  • Sat 30th April- 1030-1130 Centre users
  • Sat 30th April -1-3.30 Filter Beds and Marshes Group (existing group of local users/residents) please note this will be at the Waterworks centre 
Notices will be posted around the Lea Bridge Road area about these plans and they will also do a leaflet drop of local residences in the next couple of weeks. Please look out for these sessions if you are interested in the future of this facility.
