Councillor Terry Gazzard, Conservative Cabinet Member for Development and Major Projects, quoted in the Chronicle on November 13th 2008:
"A lot of hard work was put into getting the ice rink for this year and it was very disappointing that it could not go ahead.
"We will start looking into the possible sites and do not want Bath to be sold short again next year."
Councillor Terry Gazzard, Cabinet Member for Development and Major Projects, quoted in the Chronicle on November 12th 2009:
“I was very keen to have an ice rink this year, having failed last year.
“I am dismayed that we haven’t managed to do it this year.
“I will do my damnedest for next year.”
The ice rink was supposed to go in Parade Gardens, but the planning application was rejected after the Environment Agency said there was a risk of flooding. Unfortunately the planning application was submitted so late in the year that there is not now time for a new application, for a different site, to be tabled.
It’s hard to understand why the Cabinet member left it so late, especially given the complications regarding last year’s attempt to have an ice rink.
