The council has indicated it is considering a CPO of the former cinema. The cabinet will meet on December 4th to consider the idea. The Waltham Forest Cinema Trust has said it could buy the building if it came onto the market. The council apparently considered the CPO option shortly after the building was bought by UCKG in 2003, but decided against it. However since then the owners have had three planning applications rejected, and is about to have its second public enquiry. More details at the Waltham Forest Guardian.
