A roller skating rink for Mullacott?
A new attraction has been proposed for the Ilfracombe area with following submission of plans for an all weather roller skating rink at Mullacott Industrial Estate.
The leisure facility would be created within the current premises of Horne Park Garage, which has obtained permission to build new premises at Mullacott.
The building is owned by Michael Carter of Colo Leisure and a statement accompanying the application to North Devon Council says the developers believe the facility would be ideally suited for the one acre site.
It said the development would create 15 full and part time jobs and would attract local families plus rejuvenate the estate as well as providing a rare undercover leisure facility for the Ilfracombe and Woolacombe area.
It is proposed that roller skating or balding session would be available to members only and be offered in two hour periods, with the main sessions at the weekends and evenings.
