DENNISTOUN Adult Gaming Would Be Open Till Midnight, Seven Days A Week

RESIDENTS have raised concerns about a plan to turn a former bank in Dennistoun into an adult gaming centre.

Cashino Gaming Ltd want to open a Merkur Slots venue at 424 Duke Street.

The premises would be open from 8am to midnight seven days a week.

Five public objections have already been submitted to Glasgow City planners who are now considering the proposal.

Previously a branch of the TSB, the accommodation has been vacant for some time.

A proposal to allow the premises to be used as a restaurant was refused earlier this year.

One resident who objected stated: “Having another gambling outlet does not align with the community spirit that is continued to being built upon in Dennistoun.

“These prime commercial spaces should be prioritised for outlets that build local economy with local businesses, not by large chains taking advantage of the financially vulnerable.”

A document submitted with the application states: “Cashino Gaming Ltd is an experienced and responsible adult gaming centre operator.

“As with all our premises, we will operate a ‘good neighbour’ policy and will ensure that all neighbours are respected.

“We will implement a robust operational management plan and implement robust security measures to ensure that the premises, our customers and our relationship with our neighbours are all well managed.”
