Ice Rink Plans For Cleveleys

CLEVELEYS could get an indoor ice rink along the seafront if a planning application is successful.

A company called Cascade Ice, which operates rinks in South East England, is looking to set up a facility in vacant premises next to the Vue Cinema.

The company mainly runs a number of temporary winter-only rinks in Bournemouth, Basildon in Essex and Shepherds Bush, London.

A planning application has been received by Wyre from Studio Systems UK Limited, the architects acting for Cascade Ice.

A Studio Systems spokesman said: "We are the designers and Cascade would then bring in their builders to construct it and put it together."

The nearest rink to Wyre is the one run by the Pleasure Beach in Blackpool, which is larger than the one being proposed for Cleveleys.

A council spokesman confirmed that a decision on the matter was expected to be reached by June 10.
