Car retailer plans to demolish cinema to create 65 jobs

How the new dealership could look

A Showcase cinema in Derby and its surrounding restaurant buildings could be demolished to make way for a new car dealership.

If given the go-ahead, the plans, at the Foresters Park Centre, will create 65 jobs at a new CarShop outlet.

The proposals include the demolition of the cinema and a Pizza Hut restaurant to build a new used car dealership and display forecourt.

The move follows Carshop’s recent investment in Nottingham, where it created 75 jobs at a site which is able to display over 900 vehicles across a seven-acre site.

CarShop is owned by the Sytner Group.
