PLANS for a four-screen cinema in Cirencester have been resubmitted to Cotswold District Council and are being backed by the town council planning committee.

The two applications, asking for listed building consent and full planning permission, include a four-screen cinema, student accommodation, restaurants, cafes, shops, new public toilets and a refurbished public realm.

The plans for the Brewery Court cinema had already been approved by Cotswold District Council’s planning committee in November last year but after the application was legally challenged, developers were required to change certain features before resubmitting.

Resubmitted plans show changes to the courtyard area in front of the Niccol Centre.

Cirencester town council said they had no objection to the resubmitted application.
