Futurist demolition and slope stabilisation

On 1 April the single new council for North Yorkshire launched replacing Scarborough Borough Council and other local authorites in North Yorkshire.

To find your Councillor or to view minutes, meetings and agendas please visit the North Yorkshire Council website.

The project to demolish the Futurist site and carry out associated slope stabilisation works started in early 2018.

The company undertaking the project on our behalf is contractor, Willmott Dixon Construction Limited.

The works will take approximately 13 months to complete so the theatre and associated buildings will not disappear overnight. The stability of the cliff behind the Futurist is the number one priority. We have worked closely with technical experts to create a detailed demolition plan that analyses the risks in great detail and puts in place methods to mitigate them. This involves Willmott Dixon taking a careful, phased approach to the demolition, where the building will be brought down bit by bit.
