Old Cinema

Post by The Masked Woler »

I see the old cinema (night club etc) is up for conversion to flats, with some retail units.

at least it will be tidied up and put to use at last.

I would still have preferred that it went back to the old arcade style which gave a number of businesses a start up.

Looks a pretty intense development to me with very small rooms, but I agree it will be nice to have the building put to some use rather than rotting as it is now and at least there are car parking spaces included.

Parking spaces included - yes, 1 per 2 bed flat - and one of those is flagged as a disabled parking space, so in theory not even one per flat.

It's near the station and bus stop so people won't have cars.

Pretty much *anything* would be an improvement on the club...

Ah yes, of course. Silly me.

Oohh, that's an interesting find! I hope it will encourage the other flat owners along that side of the road to spruce up their flats with a lick of paint. It could look so much nicer down that part of town with a bit of minimal effort.

I believe the cinema/nightclub site got approved with zero parking. While the Amwell End site next to it got approved this year with some parking at the back, roughly one per dwelling.
