Still time to share your views on the King’s Park ice rink proposals

Hundreds of residents have already offered their views on the recently unveiled King’s Park ice rink proposal, but there’s still time for people to submit their feedback.

7,000 questionnaires have now been distributed throughout Bournemouth to provide a representative sample. 3,500 have been sent to residents living in the King’s Park catchment area and another 3,500 have been distributed in every ward throughout the borough. Residents who receive questionnaires have until 7th November to complete and send them back, when all feedback will be considered and a decision made at Cabinet in December on whether to progress with the proposed plans.

Councillor John Beesley, Deputy Leader at Bournemouth Borough Council said: “We have already had a significant number of emails and letters from residents regarding the King’s Park proposals and hope that we will also receive a good response to the questionnaires. This is a chance for the public to have their say, so anyone who wants to see these plans move forward, and anyone who feels strongly against the proposed leisure facility should get in touch.”

The Olympic-sized ice skating rink, which could include a separate area for curling, would be combined with other facilities according to the ice rink operator to create an all new leisure complex. The proposed additional facilities could also include an indoor football pitch, an indoor surfing facility, an outside archery centre, mini golf, a climbing wall and café and restaurant facilities overlooking the park.

Residents who do not receive a questionnaire can submit feedback until 24 October 2008 togreenspaces@bournemouth.gov.uk or Bournemouth Borough Council (Ice Stadium Project), Queens Park Pavilion,Queens Park West Drive, Bournemouth, BH8 9EW.
