Leader councillor Ian Brookfield said an update on the £55 million project, which has been delayed due to red tape, would be announced in the next few weeks.

He said: "The Westside scheme is an important project – we're actually very close to the end now.

"I can't give an exact date but I'm hoping to give more information in the next few weeks."

More coverage:

Councillor Brookfield stressed time was needed to ensure the development was right.

Mini golf, 10-pin bowling, a multi-storey car park, restaurants and shops will all feature as part of the Westside development to transform part of the city centre.

The cinema is seen as the focal point for the development, which spreads from the Penn Road Island to Salop Street, and includes a pedestrianised link route leading to a new public plaza in Victoria Street.

The scheme has already been put back due to financial issues
