£10 million rink plan for Derby

Derby Telegraph reports on plans to turn the eyesore site of Duckworth Square in Derby into a 56 x 26 metre ice rink. The £10 million development will also include a gym, dance studio, changing rooms and café bar.

Redevelopment depends on the acquisition of the Debenhams building in Victoria Street, part of the Becketwell area of the city that includes Duckworth Square, by Derby City Council. Acquisition is due to happen later this week, and the aim is to have the rink up and running by 2020.
