Dear Friends of the Picture Palace Campaign,
It seems like an age since our July update informing you that:
“On 17 June, KICC (Kingsway International Christian Centre) issued its press release stating that it would not be lodging an appeal against Bromley’s planning decision in December. Instead it is now “considering a variety of building use options that will most benefit the whole community”. The Picture Palace Campaign responded positively but cautiously, encouraging KICC to enter into “meaningful dialogue” to find a “mutually acceptable outcome”. We noted that the building’s D2 classification will allow only leisure uses. And we urged KICC to contact City Screen, so as to bring back a cinema to 25 Church Road.”
As we are continually asked what is happening at 25 Church Road and where we are with the campaign, here is an update.
