Developer Baylis Estates held a public exhibition inside the Mall at Cribbs Causeway, displaying proposals which they state received “an overwhelming level of support” from those who responded.
David Mace, director of Baylis Estates, said: “We are really pleased at the level of support shown for these proposals.
A spokesman from Planet Ice, who will operate the new ice rink, added: “The new ice rink will offer some highly engaging and unique opportunities for the local community.
Bristol Alliance, owner and developer of Cabot Circus, has objected to the application. It said that the scheme, together with the other proposed for the area, would have an adverse impact on the city centre.
