The planning application for a new cinema development in Yate has been registered and the Shopping Centre management are now asking the people of Yate to show their support for it.
Andrew Lowrey, Yate Shopping Centre Manager: "It is essential that the public get behind this planning application by contacting South Gloucestershire Council and telling them that they want the cinema in Yate!
"A cinema is a key plank of the Town's Community Plan and this is the opportunity that people have been waiting for. At the public consultation earlier this year there was overwhelming backing for the development proposals and now we need to turn that into support."
The planning application, which will be considered by the Council early next year, includes a six-screen multiplex cinema, restaurants and new retail units. If the Council gives the go-ahead for the development, work will start in early 2015 and the cinema could be open by the end of the year.
Continuing, Andrew said: "People who want to support the application can go to our website where there is a link directing them to the relevant page on the South Gloucestershire Council website. They can also e-mail or write into the Council and details are again given on our website.
"We'll be pulling out all the stops to ensure that we deliver what the people of Yate want and support plays a critical part in this".
