The Light Cinema, Stockport
A major development in Stockport has moved a step closer after the council gave its own developments planning permission in January this year. Approval was given for the £45m Redrock leisure scheme in Stockport town centre, which includes the Burrows Little designed 10-screen cinema for The Light, restaurants and shops. The Redrock development, formerly known as Bridgefield, includes a 1,200-space multi-storey car park, a public square and the pedestrianisation of Princes Street and Bridgefield Street. Work is set to start this year with a view to occupation by 2017.

Councillor Patrick McAuley, the council’s executive member for economic development and regeneration, said: “This is a very exciting time for Stockport. Developments such as these help our ambition of putting Stockport on the map to bring more people to work, shop and socialise here.”

Burrows Little are currently preparing detail design and construction drawings.

The Light Cinemas set to open in Bolton before the end of the Year
Burrows Little's client, The Light, will operate the proposed nine-screen, 1,200-seat cinema within the renovated Market Place Shopping Centre in Bolton. The 30,000 sq ft cinema is being installed on part of the existing three-storey car park. Burrows Little was also involved in the preliminary feasibility discussions between The Light and Bolton Council and assessed a number of sites in Bolton prior to the selection of Market Place. Bolton does not currently have a town centre cinema and this was a council priority.

The £15m revamp of the 400,000 sq ft shopping centre has been on site since the start of 2015. Moorgarth, the UK arm of Inception Holdings SARL, is the developer/investor for the historic site. In addition to the installation of our cinemas, alterations to the existing basement brick vaults of the Victorian Market Hall are underway at the south of the centre, turning the space into 30,000 sq ft of restaurant space within seven or eight units. The works include the creation of a void between the Ground Floor and the basement to create views in the style of the arcades in Covent Garden, London. The overall redevelopment also includes modernisation of the 1980s extension, improvements to customer flow, new shop fronts, lifts and stairways.

Opening their doors at the end of 2015, The Light Cinema in Bolton will be Burrows Little's third completed cinema for the chain. Following hot on the heels of Bolton will be projects in Walsall, Sheffield, Stockport and other centres in the UK.
