PLANNING INSPECTOR VISITS CINEMA BUILDING AT 25 CHURCH ROAD
THE PLANNING inspector assigned to deal with the appeal by Pentecostal church KICC has visited the cinema building at 25 Church Road.
The visit was attended by residents of Patterson Road whose homes back onto the rear of the building; the Picture Palace Campaign, Norwood Society, and Crystal Palace Triangle Planning Group.
Crystal Palace ward Cllr Angela Wilkins (Bromley) also attended along with KICC officials and their planning representatives.
KICC are appealing against a Bromley council planning committee’s refusal to allow a change of use of the cinema building at 25 Church Road into a mixed church and assembly / leisure use.
Posters for the burlesque event planned at 25 Church Road had been removed prior to the visit and replaced with posters advertising a film called Noble.
KICC representatives told the planning inspector a premiere of the film had been planned for that night but the “star guest” was unable to attend because of illness and the film would now be shown in March.
The film tells the story of Christina Noble, a children’s rights campaigner, charity worker and writer, who founded the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation in 1989. It stars Deirdre O’Kane.
