Traders in Brixton have called on Lambeth council to return the site of a temporary ice rink to its original use as a car park.
The council held a meeting at the town hall last night to gather view on what to do at the site of the Planet Ice, in Popes Road, before the area is totally redeveloped in about two years time.
The temporarily chilly venue is due to close next week, when a rink reopens in Streatham as part of the Tesco “hub”.
The site will take until March to be dismantled, and the council wants any “in between” project to open in July 2014. They have secured £40,000 of funding to make that possible, and hope any use of the land would be financially self-sustaining.
Stuart Horwood, chairman of the Brixton Market Traders’ Federation, said: “What we need to remember is what the car park is there for. People need to come to the market to buy their shopping, and they need to get it to their cars.”
