Residents 'Happy' With Futurist Development

Residents 'Happy' With Futurist Development

Scarborough Borough Council says residents with properties near the Futurist Theatre site are now happy with the plans to develop the area. 

It comes after a drop in session that was hosted by the council where residents who had fears about their properties once the development got underway could come and talk to representatives. 

The planning application for the development of the Futurist Theatre site that will be looked at later this year is to look at the method of the demolition. 

It's likely that the application will be heard by the beginning of October and if that is successful, preliminary works could begin by Christmas. 

Mike Cockerill is from Scarborough Borough Council's Cabinet, he said:

"Obviously residents had fears with such a major demolition and site stabilisation going on adjacent to their properties. 

Most of the residents who came to the drop in session had their fears significantly allayed and they went away happy. 

The major concern with the demolition and stabilisation, is residents who fear their property may even fall down. 

We put those concerns to bed because there is no way that we're going anyway more than 10 metres to any adjacent properties."
