Marlborough's Parade Cinema and Arts Centre gets town councillors' blessing - noise the only worry

The Parade Cinema & Arts Centre: artist's impression - from the planning documentsThe Parade Cinema & Arts Centre: artist's impression - from the planning documentsAt their meeting on Monday (January 29), Marlborough Town Council's planning committee approved the conversion of the former Chapel in The Parade into a cinema and arts centre.

 

 
This addition to the town's facilities was welcomed and councillors acknowledged  the support for the cinema in the community.  The plans include seating in the cinema for about 100 people and a cafe seating 20 people. 

However, councillors did note a letter they had received from neighbours of the Chapel who while having no objections to the plans, did have concerns about potential noise, vibration and privacy issues. 

Architect's plan showing seatingArchitect's plan showing seatingCouncillors added a rider to their approval that they "would welcome a condition placed on the planning permission ensuring that adequate measures are put in place to protect neighbouring properties from noise and vibration."

The plans submitted to Wiltshire Council do go to great lengths to explain how they will "reduce transfer of sound out of the auditorium and cafe and achieve a good acoustic quality within the auditorium". 


Apart from an acoustic lining within the building, the design calls for the gallery to be separated from the side-wall which abuts the neighbouring house.  This will to prevent vibration and sound reaching the neighbouring homes.

The owners want to the restore the Grade II Listed gallery to its former use as 'a viewing platform'. 


The planning application states that the owners - Image Cinemas Ltd - are "...hugely encouraged by the enthusiasm and interest in the project by local residents."

The plans - reference 18/00398/FUL - can be seen
