Theatres Trust comments on Brighton Hippodrome Holding Direction

19th August 2014

The Theatres Trust is pleased that the Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government, the Rt Hon Eric Pickles MP, has issued a Holding Direction to Brighton and Hove City Council in relation to the Planning application for redevelopment of Brighton Hippodrome. A Holding Direction prevents Brighton and Hove City Council from granting Planning permission whilst the DCLG actively consider the call-in request for Planning and Listed Building Consent applications to convert the Brighton Hippodrome into an eight screen cinema and restaurant complex.

The Brighton Hippodrome is the most at risk theatre building in the UK on our Theatre Buildings at Risk Register 2013. Find out more about the Brighton Hippodrome case
