West Central cinema complex WILL start this spring, says developer

Bournemouth Echo: West Central cinema complex WILL start this spring, says council West Central cinema complex WILL start this spring, says council

WORK on building a new £50million cinema and restaurant complex in the heart of Bournemouth will start in a few months, developers have promised.

The developers of West Central say they are preparing to appoint contractors ready for work to start on the Exeter Road site in late spring.

Licet Developments hoped to start work last year, when they had finalised their funding and had major operators signed up to the scheme.

However, building plans were delayed when Bournemouth council decided it wanted to see a bus station built on the land instead and withdrew an offer to sell a small strip of council-owned land.

The council believed Licet would be unable to build its leisure scheme without the council land but Licet simply amended the design and successfully applied for planning permission.

Chris Dymond, Licet’s director, said: “Major developments such as this do take time as it’s really important that we get it just right to create the longed-for all weather leisure facility that will draw locals and visitors to spend time and money in the very heart of Bournemouth.

“So we’re delighted that at last the formal paperwork is in place and we’re now working closely with all partners to bring the plans to life.”

Agreements are currently being concluded with leading restaurants including names that will be new to Bournemouth, as well as a major multiplex cinema operator. Names are due to be announced soon as agreements are finalised.

It’s anticipated West Central will take around 18 months to build and will create 300 new jobs.

Nigel Hedges, president of the Chamber of Trade, said: “There are 16 prime sites waiting for redevelopment in the town centre, which will help strengthen our offer to residents and visitors.

“We now need to see a crane in the air because that will send out a signal that Bournemouth is open for business and acting on its vision.”

I suspect most residents would rather see a bus station on this site in order to get buses out of the town centre.
Its taken over 30 years to get the go ahead to redevelop this site and we are going to get something we don't want! This development could go on any of the other sites available in the town centre but this site needs to be a bus station.

It does look rather ugly from the picture. I'm sure the local restaurant owners already paying high rental rates will be fuming. The new development in Dorchester is not unlike this, and that looks ugly and out of place to my mind too.

All in all as a local resident, whilst I recognise change can be healthy, this doesn't appear the best use for this space, as there's plenty of restaurants and cinemas already in town? This just seems an excuse to bring in larger chains and their often bland, expensive food. And I'm sure there's 'loads' of car parking spaces being made available for when it opens too?

"Leading" restaurants, a euphemism for fast food rubbish? In my book leading restaurants/cafes are independents, who are unlikely to pay extortionate rents.

Hopefully not targeted uniquely at youngsters, as did I read over 50s are now the main cinema market?

It's time for Bournemouth to wake up. Not all holidaymakers wants to go abroad, and locals are more discerning. We need to broaden our appeal and offer some exciting shops cafes & restaurants in a designated area of the town! And more outdoor terraces please

Might it not be a better idea for the council to simply allow the developer to cram in as many appartments as possible (as is the intent) and do away with this charade about restaurants, cinemas, climbing walls, surf machines etc ?

oh dear, you don't seem to have quite grasped what is going on around the pier.

The area is being developed for very upmarket flats hence the idea of putting up some idiocy (high wire zip nonsense) that can easily be dismantled when needed, rather than any expensive and permanent structure.

Bournemouth council has too mnay snouts in the trough. They know as most others do that the days of mass tourism/holidaymaker
s etc as seen previously, are long gone. The money to be made is through residential development.

They will therefore behave accordingly - despite whatever crackpot ideas are put up by those stuck in some 'glorious heyday' timewarp.

Great news! Not the absolute best location for a cinema (that's the Winter Gardens site) but a lot better than Bath Hill. Hopefully Nautilus is dead in the water.

The only people who want a bus station don't get on buses.
Any bus station would be a run down white elephant - same as at the Travel Interchange. Both Yellow Buses and More from Wilts and Dorset have almost no services that terminate in the Square now - they run through. They don't want a bus station, and would avoid their main routes from stopping there as it would delay the journey.

Bus stations across the country (including Salisbury) are closing as the bus companies don't want or need them, they end up run down, are an expensive use of land and are dangerous as they often require buses reversing. I'm not saying Gervis Place is right how it is, but a bus station is not the answer.
