Plans have been unveiled to build a new permanent indoor ice rink, together with a skydiving and ski centre, at a site in Cribbs Causeway.

The proposals are part of a vision by the developer, Baylis Estates, to introduce an ‘active sports’ theme to the entertainment and retail opportunities available in the area and make Cribbs Causeway a ‘day-out’ destination.

The new facilities also include a sports store, hotel, restaurant, coffee ‘drive thru’ and car showroom and will be developed on land next to The Venue.

This site had previously been earmarked for the proposed Concorde Museum until an alternative museum site was secured through an agreement last year between the Bristol Aero Collection Trust and neighbouring Filton Airfield owner BAE Systems.

Prior to submitting a planning application, Baylis Estates will be carrying out a community engagement programme, including a public exhibition at The Mall shopping centre on Friday 19th June from 1pm until 7pm.

David Mace, Director at Baylis Estates, said:

“Our ambitious plans for the site include building a flagship permanent indoor ice rink so that residents across the district and the wider West of England area no longer have to travel to other parts of the country to access this sort of facility all year round.”

“An indoor skydiving and ski centre – the first in the South West – is also planned for the site, along with a sports store, hotel, restaurant, coffee ‘drive thru’ and car showroom, which will deliver significant social and economic benefits to the area.”

“We are really keen to develop an active sports theme on this site which links well with the adjoining leisure park at The Venue and will provide important and integrated facilities for the future development in and around Cribbs Causeway.”
