The £ 32 million casino project on pause-mode – Middlesbrough

It’s been nearly four years now that the multi-pound casino development project in Middlesbrough (England) was given the go-ahead from the city’s council. However, no construction work is underway so far. In a recently released statement, the Mayor of Middlesrough, Dave Budd, admitted that the project is unlikely to go forwards. The council actually denied the fact that the development plan in question gets stalled. The project which would turn the old Gurney House into a casino-hotel complex is initiated by Jomast, a Stockton-based casino developer. It was granted a license back in 2012 by Middlesbrough Council’s Licensing Committee.

A council’s spokesperson said on Thursday that the plan is still valid, and that, despite the fact that it was projected to break ground in early 2013. Jomast’s subsidiary “Gurney Casino Ltd” is reportedly seeking partnership with potential operators. An imminent kickstart of the plan is expected according to information released at the meeting of the Middlesbrough’s Council executive board held last December, which would come along the plan by Premier Inn to develop a new hotel nearby. The new project would create 300 jobs and feature a luxury hotel, banquetting rooms, a casino, restaurants and multi-storey car park.
