A SECOND public exhibition is being held to discuss plans for Britain’s first multi-million pound surfing lake in Almondsbury and Easter Compton.

The Wave: Bristol will be showing the latest proposals in Easter Compton Village Hall on Wednesday, November 13 from 4pm and 8pm ahead of submitting the final planning application to South Gloucestershire Council. 

Proposals to build a £6.2 million in-land surfing experience between Over Court Farm and Washingpool Farm split local opinion at the first open consultation in July.

As well as providing perfect surfing waves of up to 1.6 metres high, the 40-acre site would include an adventure trail, natural pool, camping area with 100 pitches and eight eco-lodges, an education centre, changing facilities and café.

The Wave team said they had been hugely encouraged by the ideas and views they have received from the public on the concept plans.

“Ever since we first started talking about the project, we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response from the public,” said Nick Hounsfield, co-founder of the project. “Following on from the first exhibition, we’ve listened very carefully and taken into account all the ideas and suggestions we’ve received. 

"This second event now gives us an opportunity to show the public the detailed proposals and answer any further questions they may have.”

Information about the proposals will be available at from Wednesday, November 13 or for more information call 0800 3777345, write to FREEPOST WAVE HELLO or email
