Transport Planning

Cole Easdon played a key role in the team that secured planning permission for the £30 million venue that replaced the previous single-pad Lee Valley Ice Centre in London.

The Lee Valley Ice Centre is one of the most popular ice-skating venues in the UK. The new building has doubled capacity to over half a million visits per year, providing two Olympic size ice rinks, alongside a gym and exercise studio, a multi-purpose studio and a café.

Our Experts’ Input:

Healthy Streets Transport Assessments put sustainability front and centre.

This required extensive ATZ assessments to be undertaken by our team, whilst also including more traditional traffic impact analysis. A key success of this project was successfully demonstrating that the vehicle impact from such a significantly enlarged venue would be minimal, which avoided the need for extensive and costly transport modelling. Working with the Design Team, we also developed the layout helping to achieve an efficient design, balancing competing demands ranging from biodiversity to coach access.
