Thanks Ken. A google search for health club in Bristol leads to quite a number of them. I wonder if plans like this and similar plans for many other closed cinemas are based on proper business plans. Having read all the planning papers online for whiteladies, any return on investment would be very much over the long term. The developers were talking about reinstating lots of original features (which is a good thing) but in the context of maximising profits, they’d have been better off starting with a bolt together shed..

What’s the future now for whiteladies I wonder?

Did the work to convert to a health club ever actually start?
What’s the status of the cinema now?
The consent for the works to create a health club was granted in 2004 for a period of five years. If work hasn’t started, then the developers would have to reapply.
If anyone knows, could they share that info?
Thanks,
Gary
