Planning go-ahead for Cameron Toll cinema

A CINEMA proposal for Cameron Toll shopping centre has been approved.

Edinburgh councillors backed a recommendation for approval by planners, the details of which can be found on the city council’s planning applications portal, here.

Says the application: “Proposed cinema development (Class 11) with ancillary Class 1 (retail), Class 2 (Financial and Professional Services) and Class 3 (Food and Drink) use, reconfiguration of existing car park and landscaping (as amended).”

Reports broadcasters, STV, the application was voted for by a margin of ten to one, and the complex – to be operated by Empire Cinemas – will include a restaurant and a GP practice.

It adds: “The £12m development will lead to a loss of 128 parking spaces, however new racks for bicycles will be installed.”

The Edinburgh Evening News newspaper, here, notes that when the plans were first unveiled, here, there was a ‘mixed’ reaction.
