Hippodrome restoration plans approved.

At the City Planning Committee today a last minute effort by the Chairman to defer a decision on the Hippodrome plans went unsupported. The Committee then voted 8 to 3 with one abstention to grant full planning application BH2013/04348 for alterations to the Hippodrome and Hippodrome House to form an 8 screen cinema and 4 associated cafe units.

They also voted 8 to 4 to grant listed building consent (BH2013/04351) for internal and external alterations, restoration and repair to the Hippodrome and Hippodrome House to facilitate conversion to cinemas and associated café/restaurant units.

  1. Gosh, very much in two minds. I'd prefer something more attuned to the surround building, but pastiche can be disastrous.

    I'm surprised the old building couldn't be revived as a theatre, but there is the Theatre Royal.
