ALCOHOL could be served until 11pm at a popular watersports centre in the south of Bracknell Forest if new plans are approved.

Bosses at Freetime Leisure, the company that runs the watersports at Horseshoe Lake Activity Centre in Sandhurst, are asking for permission to sell alcohol from 12pm to 11pm Monday to Sunday.

They also want to be allowed to play recorded music from 8am to 11pm seven days a week.

Residents wishing to comment on these plans must do so by March 30 by getting in touch with Bracknell Forest Council’s licensing team here.

The activity centre, on Mill Lane, is set to re-open on March 29, according to its website.

Watersports on offer from Freetime Leisure, who lease the site from the council, include dinghy sailing, windsurfing, dragon boating, canoeing and raft building.

Horseshoe Lake was set to be turned into a country park after Bracknell Forest Council announced upgrades worth around £2.5 million in early 2019.

Plans included adding a new pavilion with an integrated cafe and an expanded car park to the Sandhurst site.

But the proposals fell through after ‘a number of concerns’ were raised about access to the lake.

In November 2019, Bracknell Forest Council announced it would make a number of ‘simple upgrades’ to the site instead, including free on-site parking, adding a small seasonal cafe, landscape enhancements and more.
