seaside cinema – Scarborough

The Borough of Scarborough have granted consent to a mixed use redevelopment of a tired town centre retail block in Scarborough.  The ground floor is retained but converted in to five restaurant units, while the upper floors are taken away and replaced by a new 6 screen cinema.  For us the challenges are all in the detail, resolving on-street deliveries and suitable pedestrian routes.  Plus there is the complex assessment of the amount of traffic generated by the proposed use, compared with the existing use, also taking in to account the potential for linked trips, and different peak times.  And, on a site with no car parking, an analysis of the many local car parks and their spare capacity on a February and August weekday and weekend.
