APPLICATIONS 00010674M & 00010674N

National Picture Theatre

The owner submitted applications for Planning Permission and Listed Building Consent for the following:

1) To install a 2-metre high fence on the edge of the front area that contains the ruins.

2) To install freestanding racking for timber storage directly behind the front area that contains the ruins.

3) To install a freestanding shed in the central area of the site, on the edge of an area that that the owner was previously given permission to build a car park.

The proposed development would have taken up the rear two-thirds of the Grade ll Listed site, and would have meant that the Trust would not have been able to build a memorial / performance / events area in the centre section, and would not have been able toi build an education building on the rear section.

Therefore, the Trust needed the planning committee at Kingston upon Hull City Council to REFUSE permission for this application.


The Trust submitted objection letters for both applications. The Trustees also all submitted objection letters as individuals.

Objection letters were also submitted by English Heritage and the Hull Civic Society.

The application documents can be viewed on the Council's website - under Planning Applications.
