An inspector has granted temporary permission for a 400-square metre ice rink in Twickenham as part of ‘winter festivities’ in the area, subject to various conditional requirements including a complaints hotline.

The proposal sought permission for the open-air ice rink along with ancillary facilities, including a marquee for ticketing and skate hire, food concessions, a viewing area and a PA system for music and announcements. It would be sited on an open grassed area within Radnor Gardens, a small riverside public garden near Twickenham, south-west London.
