Gambling/General : Swansea Council needs Support

By Andrea Klein

Level: Apr 10th 2007
Swansea Council is looking for support from Westminster after plans for a new generation of casinos in the UK were turned down by the House of Lords. Officials will be getting in touch with the Department of Culture, Media and Sport after the refusal of the government's Gambling Order by peers.

The House of Commons had overturned the regulations but Ministers are now said to be reflecting on how to take the plans forward for 17 new casinos across the UK. Swansea was one of eight locations to have been recommended to receive a small casino license.

Manchester was recommended for the one regional casino license and eight other locations were recommended for a large license but the House of Lords vote means the plans for all 17 have now been put on waiting. The recommendations were reversed by the Casino Advisory Panel and the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport but the disagreement of the proposal in the House of Lords means Swansea Council is now on stand-by for further developments.

A new casino license in Swansea would have allowed a minimum total customer area of 750 square meters and would permit up to 80 gaming machines with a maximum jackpot of £4K. Also, additional betting services other than bingo would have been allowed. The addition of such an attraction in Swansea would complement other ongoing initiatives, such as the redevelopment of the holiday center and the David Evans site, which are shifting the face of the city and generating investment opportunities.
