Scarborough's Futurist: Demolition Costs Approved

Published by the Yorkshire Coast Radio News Team at 3:56pm 17th October 2017.

The £3.91 million for demolishing Scarborough's Futurist Theatre has been approved.

The council's cabinet has today accepted a report on the costings of knocking the building down and stabilisng the cliffs behind it.

On Friday, a decision will be made on whether or not to give planning permission to the method of knocking it down.

But there's been confusion and disagreement over who's had access to the report, with some councillors claiming not to have been given the information.

Cabinet Member Bill Chatt stated members themselves had only received the report yesterday (16th October).

Councillor Tony Randerson has been speaking to Yorkshire Coast Radio's Jon Burke..

Councillor Janet Jefferson also wanted to know why demolition costing figures hadn't been shared.

Council Leader Derek Bastiman's shared his thoughts..
