An ice rink will be set-up in the market place over the Christmas period but it will be closed on bank holidays.
Shoppers will be able to skate on the rink, which will be set-up at the eastern end of the market place, Romford, in front of the Aldi supermarket between November 18 and January 15.
The planning application was approved by the council’s regulatory services committee last night despite concerns over levels of noise for residents living in the flats overlooking Market Place.
The ice rink will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year but it will be opened on December 27.
Access to the rink will not be free and a queuing system will be put in place.
The committee also approved plans for a new nursery MySpace, Dagnam Park Drive, Harold Hil, which could provide child care for up to 20 children
Four members of staff would be working at the nursery, which would be open extended hours.
