Council set to decide on casino firm

FIRMS who are interested in running a Solihull casino will be meeting with the council next week.

FIRMS who are interested in running a Solihull casino will be meeting with the council next week.

The borough has already received approval from the Government to build a large casino.

Now the local authority has to decide which gaming company should be awarded the license.

A public consultation into the council’s gaming policy has already got underway.

This takes into account the competition criteria to be followed before a licence is issued and people’s views on any regeneration activities and facilities they feel a casino operator should be encouraged to propose when making a bid.

A council spokeswoman said the meeting with potential casino operators would give them an insight into the council’s expectations, including securing the greatest benefit for the local area.

To view and comment on the council’s draft gambling policy, go to www.solihull.gov.uk/consultation/gambling policy.htm or email gamblingpolicy@solihull.gov.uk before June 26.
