Tivoli plans sent back to the drawing board
Unpopular plans to convert the Tivoli on Mitcham’s Corner, former cinema and pub, into luxury apartments overlooking the river have today been rejected by City Council planning officers.
Jamie Dalzell and Cheney Payne, pictured alongside the now derelict cinema with former City Mayor Ian Nimmo-Smith, who they have been working with to campaign for better plans.
Community groups from across the city objected to the proposals from J.D. Weatherspoons as they claimed that they failed to meet a number of local planning requirements.
Local Lib Dem campaigner Jamie Dalzell welcomed the decision, noting that: “following today’s decision, the Tivoli remains a fantastic opportunity for developing the North of the city. We hope now to see plans which reflect residents’ desire for more amenities in the area and which build on the growing success of locally owned businesses.”
