More Questions on Scarborough's Futurist Theatre

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 7:48am 15th December 2016.

More questions are being asked about Scarborough's Futurist Theatre.

Campaigners trying to save the venue are questioning the council over its plans for the theatre's demolition.

The Save the Futurist Campaign Group says there's not been a democratic vote on whether or not to knock it down.

Council leader Derek Bastiman has said it is coming down and it being on the agenda at a council meeting next month is just about determining the cost.

Campaign Group Co-ordinator Patricia David says demolishing the building has never been agreed:

"A lot of us have looked through minutes (of council meetings) and there has been no agreement in full council and no vote taken on demolition. The method of demolition was discussed, but it's putting the cart before the horse. Let's discuss the method of demolition, but we haven't actually decided whether we'll be able to demolish it anyway".

The council says it's putting together a time line on the history of decisions about the theatre, ready for a report in the new year.
