Call for IMAX site suggestions

Bournemouth Council is asking for views on what should replace the IMAX building next to the Pier. The path to the East Cliff rises on its southern side.
Suggestions include a water park, tropical garden, spa, family play park and ’boutiques and bistros’.
A swimming pool has already been ruled out due to cost which is a pity because the site was once the swimming pool. In very early days the plot was both a baths and a library.
But these Victorian buildings were low rise and did not spoil the view of Poole Bay and the Isle of Purbeck from Bath Road.
A decision is needed by June and views are welcome at the Town Hall. This is a rare chance to improve the coast. Maybe it should just be a garden as the view is priceless.
