Sorry wrong thread about the waste ground ,why not just raise the height of the prom it would only cost about 25million as a guess .

I've moved the other post to the right place, BM :-))

Raising the height of the prom was suggested one time.  Can't remember why it wasn't pursued.

I can see your logic, but I don't think we can add a building that is less than a year old to the Eyesores list.  Give it another year or two first. :laugh:

I'm sorry to have to do it, but it's time to add in the Grand Theatre to the Eyesores list. Recently known as the Broadway Boulevard nightclub, this Edwardian Theatre closed in 2013, with the building's exterior deteriorating alarmingly since. It is currently boarded up and for sale at £750,000. Somehow, I don't imagine there will be anyone rushing to buy....

Behind the tatty exterior lies (somewhat hidden) an intimate 1,000 seater auditorium. You can take a 'virtual tour' of the interior by following the link here:

It's difficult to know what use could be made of this building other than as a nightclub/community theatre/arts venue.

Just for the record.......the new beach.

Once the North Shore Beach has been submerged by the thousands of tons of rock we will have to make good the Promenade itself.

If my memory serves me right from the brief period I was employed by CCBC, the Promenade was built to only take light traffic such as, pedestrians, cycles, bath chairs, horses and light vehicles.  These great 40 ton monsters cruising up and down with their loads will not be doing the surface or what's underneath any good at all.    ZXZ

It's haunted as well  :o
Sadly I think it's the wrong side of town to be a profitable nightclub.
Venue Cymru can't sell half the tickets to the shows they've got, so can't see use for it as a Theatre.
