Plans for a new casino in Bournemouth’s BH2 centre appear to have stalled.
BH2 operator Legal & General/Licet Holdings has put forward a bid to change the use of the units to one permitting various leisure activities.
The firm says it has ten-pin bowling and indoor golf providers expressing an interest.
Last July, a spokesman for Aspers, who were linked to the development of the casino, said the firm was “committed to bringing a new state-of-the-art casino to Bournemouth” and that BH2 was the “preferred location”.
The facility was to be spread across two floors, open 24 hours a day with a live jazz music, a VIP area, and electronic gambling machines.
Referring to the council’s plans to develop the Winter Gardens site on the other side of Exeter Road, the application said: “The location is eminently suited to leisure uses, particularly family entertainment.”
