Had a look in the large hole today and an old wall has been partially exposed which I assume was part of the house that used to stand on the site. I think it became a school before being demolished.

:offtopic1: I heard to day that there are 'plans' though I have no idea how far developed, to build & to extend property above Ashley Blooms and neighbours, to provide several flats.

It seems that the approval of conditions has been submitted for phase 1A. This is the development of the additional unit that was meant to be Pizza Express and now isn't on the small parking area between the end of the existing shops and the telephone exchange with 4 stories of flats above. It seems that this development will continue to tick along for some time!

Plans which could have seen new homes and a cinema built in Caversham have been pulled by developers.

Hermes' application was for a five story mixed-use building in St Martins Precinct in Church Street

Must confess, I thought that had died many moons ago, and was a bit surprised when I heard that it was still around to be pulled.

I suspect this may just be someone tidying up loose ends in the paperwork rather than a recent decision. I wouldn't be surprised if at some point they submit a new application just for the part fronting Church Street, but I don't expect the cinema to re-appear.

I would think the target audience for that style of cinema would be cannibalised by the new one opening soon in the BroadStMall
