Plans put forward for new leisure and shopping complex in Cirencester to include multi-screen cinema

A MULTI-SCREEN cinema is included in plans submitted this week for a new leisure, cultural and shopping complex in the heart of Cirencester.

Developers Wildmoor Properties are behind the plans which include six retail units, four restaurants or cafes and a four-screen cinema as well as a revamp of New Brewery Arts.

The multi-million pound scheme which would be built along the north edge of the Brewery Car Park between Brewery Arts and Tesco has been welcomed by Cirencester Town Council and the chamber of commerce.

The current New Brewery Arts complex will be redesigned to create a new multi-purpose arts facility for educational, performing arts and gallery use, with an adjoining sculpture terrace.

The pedestrian area around Brewery Court will be revitalised with the existing pedestrian routes to Castle Street and Cricklade Street, linking the complex to the town centre, retained.

The plans include provision for an occasional weekend market, outside seating areas for cafes, and a series of linked “intimate” courtyard areas, designed with quality materials including York stone paving, granite setts, trees and contemporary street furniture.

A key part of the development, on the upper floors, will be purpose-built accommodation for students at the Royal Agricultural University (formerly college) with 24-hour on-site supervision and a shuttle bus to the university.
