Crown Theatre in Eccles demolition plans put on hold

18th December 2015

The Theatres Trust has been mentioned in The Stage

A disused theatre at risk of demolition in Salford has been granted a reprieve after developers withdrew their plans.

The 2,500-capacity Crown Theatre in Eccles has been derelict since the late 1980s, and developer Foregate had submitted plans to Salford Council in July to knock the building down and build nearly 100 flats in its place.

Both the Theatres Trust and Historic England wrote to the council earlier this year to object to the plans, which also received 60 objections online and no comments in support of the demolition.

The Futurist Theatre, Scarborough remains not listed

18th December 2015

The Theatres Trust asked for a review of the decision not to list The Futurist Theatre earlier this year.

The Department of Culture, Media and Sport has decided that the Trust’s grounds for review did not provide evidence to consider overturning the original decision to not add The Futurist Theatre to the List of Buildings of Special Architectural or Historic Interest.

For more information on The Futurist Theatre, Scarborough please see our Theatre Database.
