Ladbrokes seeks gambling licence for Willow Brook betting office

Ladbrokes Store FrontThe opening of Ladbrokes’ new betting office at Bradley Stoke’s Willow Brook Centre has moved a step closer with the submission of an application for a premises licence.

Representations about the application may be made to South Gloucestershire Council until 13th April, meaning that the office will not open in time for the Grand National betting frenzy (4th April), but should be trading by Derby Day (6th June).

The office will occupy ‘town square unit 9’, which is part of the phase 2 ‘retail terrace’ building and separated from the main body of the Town Square by a bus lane.

The neighbouring ‘unit 8’ is earmarked for a Westworld mobility and lifestyle store, although Willow Brook Centre Manager Scott Lahive cautioned recently that the group “has yet to cross the finish line” in its rental negotiations.

Taylors Estate AgentsElsewhere in the Town Square, signs have recently appeared in the windows of ‘unit 3’ (between Greggs and KFC) announcing the imminent arrival of Taylors Estate Agents.

The company is relocating from its current premises at Bradley Pavilions and says it will be opening a lettings department at the new office.
