IMAX scheme takes step forward

Four proposals receive residents' backing for major waterfront scheme

By Pete Hayman

Bournemouth Borough Council (BBC) has approved recommendations to draw up a planning brief for the redevelopment of the town's IMAX site. The council's cabinet backed proposals to

take the scheme forward on 28 April, after it was revealed that four out of the seven options put forward for the waterfront site had received the "overall support" of local residents in a council survey. Tropical gardens; a water park; an

interactive arts, museum and entertainment scheme; and a performing arts space are among ideas backed in the council survey. More than 3,500 people took part in the

council research. Plans for a spa; boutiques and bistros; or a family play park did not receive much support as standalone plans.

The council aims to revitalise the IMAX site
