Casino for Lincolnshire - Déjà Vu?

A little over a year ago we brought you news that Lincolnshire won a bid for a casino in one of three areas within the region. Only months later, these plans were shelved, amidst fears of national gambling problems that might arise from the proposed super casinos. Now though, it looks like a casino project could be back on the cards as East Lindsey District Council have been given permission for a small casino license by the governments casino advisory panel.

Now there are four developers keen to take advantage of the license; Southview Leisure, Butlins, Fantasy Island and Coastal Land. The latter are those with the big idea to develop a pier complex on Ingoldmells sea front. Still if these plans go ahead it could be a big pay off for the area; a boost for both local employment and tourism.
