Bookies To Be Turned Into Arcade

Wednesday 21st February 2018

Ladbrokes has confirmed it wants to change an LBO in Nuneaton  into an AGC due to proposed changes in FOBT stakes, it has been confirmed.

The application has been submitted to Nuneaton and Bedworth Borough Council and it is being recommended the plan is given the go-ahead, especially given the number of other betting shops in the town centre.

“This contrast will add to the vitality and viability of the centre,” says a report to the Town Hall’s planning committee. “It is likely that uses such as this will be open during the day, and potentially in to the evening, which will help to enliven this section of the street which is dominated by many daytime only uses.”

There have been concerns in the industry that a number of LBO sites may become vacant as they become less viable due to lower B2 stakes and that betting shop operators will seek to change use to AGCs.
