Scarborough Council apply to demolish the Futurist Theatre

26th November 2014

Application: 14/02327/DM

Scarborough Borough Council consulted The Theatres Trust on the above prior approval notification for the demolition of the Futurist Theatre. The Trust strongly objects to the demolition of the Futurist Theatre and is concerned that Council is proceeding with demolition of a highly valued community and cultural asset when the long term use of the site is not clear, without certainty that any proposed use is viable and won’t need public subsidy, and where there is a clear lack of clarity regarding the community benefit by demolishing the theatre.
