Public Enquiry for the Hippodrome

Brighton & Hove News reported today that Cabinet minister Eric Pickles will decide whether the Hippodrome in Brighton can become an eight-screen cinema and restaurant complex.

He has called in the plans and will make his decision after a public inquiry.

Mr Pickles, the Communities and Local Government Secretary, was asked to intervene by the Theatres Trust, the Victorian Society and Our Brighton Hippodrome among others.

  1. The Victorian Society (VS) is brill. Interestingly Eric Pickles threw out proposals to redevelop much of Smithfield Market in London. The VS was at the forefront of that campaign, which was expensive for them.

    They're now seeking donations to help them carry on their vital work helping to preserve the glories of Victorian.
