The Shoalhaven Mayor says Council has no plans to push for a multiplex cinema in the Nowra CBD, after a private consultancy firm suggested one be built.

The recommendation by David Broyd Consulting Services and Urbacity, is part of a wider report on how to rejuvenate the Nowra CBD, as a major social and cultural destination.

It was met with a furious response from the owners of the Iconic Roxy Theatre, with the historical building recently renovated.

Shoalhaven Mayor Amanda Findley says as far as she knows, there's nothing on the radar.

"If a multiplex cinema was going to come to the Nowra area or anywhere in the Shoalhaven, it would have to be done under the steam of private enterprise"
