The ‘in principle’ decision to move on with a bid to knock down The Futurist Theatre and explore an option to turn it into a fun park has been called in.

It means the decision will now be discussed at the council’s Resources Scrutiny Committee meeting on Tuesday next week.

The scrutiny committee cannot change the executive decision, but it can refer it back to the cabinet for reconsideration with recommendations for an alternate course of action.
