Doubts raised over Odeon verdict
May 24 2010Scottish Governments refusal to permit part demolition of the B listed Odeon cinema on Clerk Street doubts have been raised by a source close to proceedings as to the reporter’s conclusions.
This stated that: “It remains possible that the current proposals represent the best opportunity for the Odeon cinema to be brought back into use. However I have concluded that not all alternatives to demolition have been fully explored.”
“On the balance of probabilities the point has not yet been reached when all the requirements of Ministers’ policy have been met.”
However Urban Realm was advised that the criteria for establishing when these requirements has been reached is not clear and without resolution there is no clear indication of how any scheme for the site can move forward.
