The proposals foundered because the building is B listed and the applicants failed to persuade the committee the statutory requirements for part demolishing a listed building existed.
Over 8 years have now passed since the premises were used as a cinema. Now, who will get this building back into use? And how soon?
For the record I voted for the plans, which would have retained the section providing the Clerk Street frontage, to be approved. The biggest disappointment is that the there is still no clarity in when we will get this vital part of the Southside back into use.
