I am very pleased to tell you that the City Mayor has signed the decision to sell the Anchor Club to us for £1 (subject to us raising the funds to build the studio theatre part of the total scheme). They will also demolish the current building so we start with a clean, level site. The full details of the decision have been published and can be seen as below:

There is now a 7 day opportunity for council members to call in the decision before it is confirmed – so there is still a risk for this period. However, all being well, we intend to authorise submission of our planning application as soon as this 7 day period has passed.
Thank you all for your support through this process so far – now we need to make sure we turn this opportunity into reality!
Very Best Wishes
