Plymouth's long-awaited new ice arena could be built before the end of 2020 – but in a different location.

The Mayflower Ice Arena was due to sit on a patch of land next to Plymouth Argyle’s redeveloped grandstand and the new Green Teverners’ Suite.

But the arena, expected to cover 40,000sqft, will now be sited nearer the Life Centre, on ground originally earmarked for the Higher Home Park office and retail development.

It means the plans have in effect been flipped with the former ice rink site now sold by a firm controlled by ex-Argyle chairman James Brent to the football club.

The office block development at Higher Home Park, which will contain three restaurants

So the club could, if it wants, build some retail and offices on the land, or even leave it as the car park it is currently being used for.

Meanwhile, Plymouth Live now understands talks are at an advanced stage between interested parties with a view to starting work on the ice arena as soon as possible.

Mr Brent is unable to speak about the ice rink plan as it is commercially sensitive, but, with a nine-month build period, it is understood that there is a desire for the rink to be in place before the end of 2020, which would fulfil Mr Brent’s vow to have it open during the Mayflower 400 year.

if brent's still involved with that then it should be a given that its not getting built anytime soon.

The Ice arena would suit being in that area more than slap bang in the middle of a football ground i feel. Dread to think however what crap will be built in the carpark now though.

More like there is once again nothing to talk about as the Squire continues to squat on his land waiting for some mug to pay for it all.

Everything Brent is involved in is as clear as mud as per usual. Without the plans I can't see what goes where but I wasnt aware that Brent owned any higher home park land other Han a piece of the car park and the vets?

it needs to be something that benefits the club, the life centre and keeps the ethos of the park without ruining it. 3 restaurants isnt going to do that as they are too far out the way to be viable or office space for yuppies isnt going too either... id just leave as a car park atm.

cheers cheers

This type of classic Brentism is a prime example of the sort of bollocks we had to put up with for years.

In Brents world, he tries to justify completely missing all the hyped up Mayflower400 stuff, so long as it's open "during the Mayflower400 year".

lol! lol!

In a wierd way I've kinda missed listening to all his classic non-developing excuses. Laughing

Problem being he got away with it being a shed when it was tucked away behind the gym and office block (stop sniggering at the back). Now it is back next to "iconic art deco facade" they should start up entrance like the image on Herald article which is from HHP Mk1 (what did I say about sniggering).

There's a quote missing from the end of the article as reprinted on this site..


In 2018 Mr Brent told Plymouth Live: “The ice rink is really important to have open by 2020. It’s a much simpler build – it’s effectively a big shed.”

"by" has been replaced with "for".

So we are already five weeks behind schedule and it hasn't even been started yet...

Nobody wants to pay for it and as we all know Bent himself won’t pay a penny.

You would think after selling off the pavilions Car park for a few million Brent would use that money to bank roll the ice shed.

But as we all know Brent won't do that.

What gets my goat is how The Heralds prints Brents vague business waffle verbatim as though it were the words of a Prophet.

There's no attempt to question him or hold him to account for anything "Why isn't this finished?" "Why have you never laid a brick on a single project you have started?" "How much did you make off the sale of the Pavilions Card Park?" Not a word they just let him write the article.

I know he likes hiding behind lawyers but feck me you can't get sued for holding someone to account.

you're right, its not like he is involved with the club anymore (THANK GOD) and this venture is seperate from the club so there is no reason at all why the herald shouldnt be taking him to task now. Whats the worse he can do ban them from the opening of it in 2080?

Hearald hold him to account would they F#%K they ain’t got the bollox to
If anythink the City of London police fraud squad should have been knocking on his door ages with the pavillions shenanigans for starters specially the geezer who persuaded the council to give him the gig then jump shit to work for brent I don’t give a F#%K what anybody says and in my opinion that’s blatantly dodgie as F#%K

Brent went on Spotlight and had the closest thing to a grilling from the midget Justin about wtf are you doing you haven't built anything yet? I knew someone who worked there at the time and Brent was apoplectic because he didn't have smoke blown up his arse and funnily enough was the last time we saw the twat on telly.

Over on ITV local news Clare Manning was scathing of the shyster over that same issue

History books will show him as the saviour of the club whereas the reality was he raped the joint
