Chesterfield Borough Council is considering installing two cameras externally and three internally at the Grade II listed building on Corporation Street.

Planning documents state: “Security has become a large issue for a number of the council’s public buildings over the past few years.

“The Pomegranate Theatre is in the heart of the town centre and in the evenings and weekends the area surrounding the building becomes exceptionally busy with members of the public visiting local restaurants, bars, nightclubs and takeaways which are mainly located around Holywell Street and Corporation Street.
