  • Concern at office-residential conversion adjoining Colne's Muni

    The Trust submitted concerns on an application for 'Prior Approval' for an office-residential conversion under permitted development as no noise impact study on the adjoining Muni had been undertaken as required, risking conflict with future occupants.

  • Recording report for bars at West End's Lyric Theatre

    Following the granting of listed building consent for bar alterations at the Lyric on Shaftesbury Avenue, a condition of development was the submission of a recording and photographic report. The submitted report met the approval of the Trust.

  • Beverley's East Riding Theatre to join the 'Elwell Trail'

    The Trust supported a proposal to affix a replica artwork by notable local oil painter Frederick Elwell to the front of the theatre as part of a trail of his works around the town.

  • Extension and improvements at Coventry's Albany Theatre

    The Trust welcomed and supported proposals for a front extension and rear infill to expand the theatre's facilities including new studio spaces, and improve its foyer and prominence.

  • Fire protection works at Harrogate Theatre

    The Trust supported proposals for internal alterations and replacements at Harrogate Theatre to allow it to address recommendations from a fire safety report.

  • Replacement safety curtain at Her Majesty's Theatre

    For reasons of safety due to its composition and that it doesn't meet modern standards, the Trust supported the removal and replacement of Her Majesty's Theatre's safety curtain.

  • Residential conversion and redevelopment for Bournemouth's former ABC

    The Trust objected to a previous application which was refused and dismissed on appeal. Although an improved design and increased retention of the original structure was welcomed, no evidence was provided to show cultural use was no longer required.

  • Temporary change of use for Oxford Playhouse

    The Trust supported a proposal to change the use of Oxford Playhouse so it could be used for additional socially-distanced lecture space for the University of Oxford, enabling the theatre to receive an income while closed for performances.

  • Enclosure to rear of Bradford Odeon

    The Trust raised no objections to the installation of an enclosure to house electrical equipment in the service yard to the rear of the Bradford Odeon.

  • Minor revisions to Bradford Odeon restoration scheme

    The Trust supported minor amendments to planning permission for the restoration of Bradford Odeon, a former Theatre at Risk. These included providing a kiosk in place of a non-original entry and extending a parapet to mask a lift over-run.

  • Blue plaque for Spennymore Settlement Everyman Theatre

    The Trust supported listed building consent for the installation of a blue plaque outside the theatre commemorating and explaining its unique and special social history.

  • Exhibits at Southbank Centre for Autumn Festival

    The Trust supported temporary proposals for exhibits and installations at and around the Southbank Centre to facilitate the running of Autumn Festival.
