At the CAG meeting today Rob Fraser, Head of planning gave a detailed report on the present situation.

He advised that Brighton International Arena Ltd now have funding for the planning stage. He said that considerable progress had been made in the back ground.

The proposed development would be an Ice rink. The outer appearance of the Ice rink would be substantially unchanged but there were changes made to the proposed interior.

He mentioned 140 car parking spaces within the development.

He did not know when a planning application would be submitted. He thought that the time table would be mid summer but there would be a consultation, where our Input would be given.

The City Council would support the development of the site as an Ice Rink in principle.
