If you need planning advice we can help.

  • Alterations within paint room at Leeds Grand

    Theatres Trust has requested submission of further information and justification for alterations within a paint room at Leeds Grand. Whilst over-flooring is supported in principle, removals of historic equipment require further assessment of harm.

  • Alterations within the scene dock at Leeds Grand

    Proposals for replacement flooring to provide the loading required of modern sets has been supported in principle, but support cannot currently be provided without demonstration the existing timber flooring cannot be retained.

  • New canopy and entry works at London's Palladium

    Planning permission and listed building consent for works to the entry of a restaurant unit within the theatre but operated independently was supported.

  • Support for moving images on Dominion's screen

    An application to alter an existing advertisement consent so that moving images and short video clips would be played was supported by the Trust.

  • New theatre for Oldham

    Planning permission for a new theatre in Oldham has been supported. The town is currently without professional provision following the recent closure of the Coliseum.

  • Advertisement consent at Noel Coward Theatre

    Advertisement consent for temporary signage for Ocean At The End Of The Lane at Noel Coward Theatre was supported.

  • New service lift at Theatre Royal Drury Lane

    With Theatre Royal having sold its Garden Restaurant it has WCs which are redundant and a requirement for new service access into the theatre, therefore the WCs will be removed and a service platform lift installed in their place.

  • Revisions to Twentieth Century Theatre proposals

    Following re-submission of applications for planning permission and listed building consent with amended plans reducing harm to historic fabric, we have now fully supported the scheme which will see the building returned to performance use.
