ELTHAM people can have their say on a new cinema and restaurant complex for the area.

Greenwich Council is seeking views on developing the Poundland site in the high street which it bought back in 2012.

A public exhibition on the cinema plans is taking place in the foyer of the Eltham Centre in Archery Road.

It will be held on January 31 from 3pm to 8pm and February 1 from 10am to 2pm. Council staff will be on hand to answer questions and listen to people’s ideas and suggestions.

Leader of Greenwich Council Councillor Chris Roberts said: "We are very confident that a new cinema and restaurant complex will make a big difference.

"It will be a great provision for local people and we know that cinemas attract people and money into town centres, which can only be good news for Eltham. These are exciting times for Eltham as we start to deliver the agreed masterplan for the town centre.

"We’re already proud of what is a unique and vibrant town centre and we know that by delivering wholescale improvements in Eltham it will not only benefit the people and businesses of Eltham, but the borough as a whole too."
