Cinema soft market testing

Planning Solutions Consulting has delivered a range of leisure consultancy projects across the UK.

Our work focusses on:

  • Carrying out market and demographic assessments
  • Carrying option appraisals to maximise income generation from leisure sites
  • Preparing business plans to test the financial viability of projects and to secure development funding

Some of the leisure consultancy projects we have worked on include:

  • Horizon Leisure: Carried out an options review of two cafes managed by the Trust in the Havant and Waterlooville Leisure Centres to identify and evaluated opportunities to enhance the customer experience and generate additional revenue.
  • Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council: Soft market testing exercise for the Regent Cinema, a leading seafront leisure site on Redcar Seafront.
  • Blackpool Council: Working for the Council we carried out a market assessment including a demographic analysis of the residential population base and competitive landscape, which was used to identify and assess future options for watersports in Stanley Park.
  • Trust: Carried out an options appraisal and market assessment for a new watersports offer in the Midlands.

  • Cotswold Country Park and Beach, in the Cotswolds
  • Supertubing Experience in Ebbw Vale
  • Vertigo Adventures High Ropes experiences (three sites in England)
  • Heritage Brewing Company (a microbrewery)
  • Royal Esplanade Hotel, Isle of Wight
  • Luxury self-catering cottage, Isle of Wight

Client testimonial

“We commissioned PSC to undertake a soft market testing exercise for the Council’s redevelopment of the Regent Cinema in Redcar. PSC were very proactive throughout the process and kept us regularly informed on progress and market responses received. The prospectus and questionnaire sent out was clear and concise and we believe as a result of this and their work PSC were able to secure a large return from the market. This in turn enabled us to target our further enquiries as well as informing the emerging designs. We believe PSC went the extra mile to provide good advice, we wouldn’t hesitate to use again in future projects.” Mark Hopgood, Senior Place Development and Investment Project Lead, Redcar and Cleveland Borough Council
