LETTER: Dome dismay

Flabbergasted to see in the Herald (October 2) that the lottery-funded iconic Dome Cinema, on a prime site in Worthing, has been ‘secretly’ sold to a private buyer for £600,000.

This amount only buys an ordinary detached house in the Worthing area now.

Bear in mind that, apart from the Architectural Heritage Fund, the National Lottery donated a massive amount to save this site for the people of Worthing – not forgetting the local population which, over the years, donated hard-earned pennies for “Save the Dome”.

As far back as January 28, 2012, the Herald published my letter where I suggested there be a public meeting between the Worthing Dome Regeneration Trust and the people of Worthing to decide how best to overcome the threat of the Dome’s ‘perilous future’

This was ignored. How can all this have happened without the people of Worthing being consulted?

We trusted the Trust.
