J Holland & Sons proposes new gaming venue in Poole

Poole gambling news

J Holland & Sons Ltd wants to launch a new gaming venue in two unused commercial units fronting Poole Bus Station in Dorset, United Kingdom. The new platform will complement the existing site in Bournemouth.

The company, trading as Trident Gaming, submitted the application for the business opportunity to the BCP Council. The venue, Trident Casino Slots, will provide a mix of gambling machines and other games to people aged over 18. Rather than cash prizes, the devices will dispense tickets to the winners, which they can exchange for cash prizes.

J Holland & Sons explained that the lack of cash prizes reduced the need to keep money on-site, thereby preventing criminal activities. The business venture will reportedly supply four full-time and two part-time jobs to the area. At least three people are needed on-site during its opening hours.

In the submitted application, Pure Town Planning disclosed that if the proposed gaming centres were approved, it would rejuvenate an area that had issues filling up unused commercial units.

“The proposed adult gaming centre would occupy two vacant units in an area which is struggling to fill empty shop units,” planners stated

“As such, the proposed adult gaming centre would contribute towards the vibrancy and vitality of the Dolphin Centre and the bus station area, offering a wider range of services and facilities for the public.”

J Holland & Sons operates several similar gaming centres across the UK. One is situated in Bournemouth’s Old Christchurch Road in the old RBS branch. The gaming centre operates every day between the hours of 10am to 10pm.

Planners also pointed out J Holland & Sons’ experience, claiming that the site would be efficiently managed and brought to a high standard under the company’s supervision.

“[The applicant has] an established business structure which ensures the site will be properly managed and the refurbishment carried out to a high standard,” planners added.

“Overall, the proposed use will bring a vacant unit in a town centre location back into a viable use, providing significant public benefits of employment, increased footfall, and providing a wet weather attraction for visitors and locals.”

J Holland & Sons’ application is currently live on BCP Council’s planning portal, and at the moment there are no filed objections to the project.
