WINTER ICE RINK APPROVED NEAR KENSINGTON HIGH STREET

Councillors have given the green light for a seasonal ice rink at Kensington Palace Gardens, just a stone’s throw from Kensington High Street and Notting Hill Gate.

The ice rink is being run by Tamarisk Events Ltd. in the grounds of Kensington Palace and will be open to the public from 30 November 2023 to 7 January 2024.

Councillors on the planning applications committee approved the structure, which will also include retail and food and drink outlets, after it complied with planning requirements. The application was approved with a condition that the condition that the fence between Kensington Palace to the south and the Embassy premises to the west will be three metres high.

Cllr Josh Rendall, lead member for local economy and employment, said:

It’s brilliant to have another amazing space in our borough with this new winter ice rink back for everyone to enjoy. My hope is that this will be a real boon for local business in the lead up to Christmas and the festive season. So get your skates on and visit some of our world class shops, bars and restaurants in Kensington High Street and Notting Hill Gate.

Cllr James Husband, chairman of the planning committee, said:

The committee was supportive of the application for an ice rink at Kensington Palace Gardens with conditions added to ensure the safety and security of members of the Royal family and Diplomats living nearby.
