Major new plans unveiled for a brand-new Lee Valley Ice Centre
One month to go to have your say on plans for a new Lee Valley Ice Centre
You may have heard about Lee Valley Regional Park Authority’s plans to redevelop Lee Valley Ice Centre into a new twin rink venue with a new gym, dance studio, café and community spaces. The new venue would double the amount of ice and act as a gateway to the surrounding green spaces, opening up the centre and providing a setting off point for walkers, runners and cyclists.
Since the consultation opened at the end of June, almost 4,000 people have visited the website to discover the plans, and almost 1,000 contributions have been made to the consultation.
With just one month to go until the consultation closes, we want to hear from you to ensure that visitors and the next generation of skaters can continue to benefit from this much-loved community hub. Click here to see the plans and have your say.

Hackney Central Conversation - Still time to have your say
The Council has launched a new project about the future of Hackney Central.
Hackney Central is where our borough meets: it’s our civic centre, home to the stunning Town Hall, historic Hackney Empire and a cinema, library and other essential services; it’s where London Overground lines, bus routes and walking and cycling routes come together; and it’s a growing town centre with more shoppers, businesses and places to go out.
It’s already seen change – like the Hackney Walk fashion district, new bars and breweries in Bohemia Place and the pedestrianisation of the Narrow Way to support local traders, shoppers and cyclists. We know local people are proud of what makes the area great, but we also know it is becoming more attractive to new residents, businesses and developers, and we need to act now to ensure we protect our town centre for the long term.
We’ve got some ideas, but we want to hear what you think.
