A former estate agents office in north Bradley Stoke looks set to be converted into a betting shop after a national bookmaker chain applied for planning permission for alterations and advertising.
Unit 6 at the Bradley Pavilions complex in Pear Tree Road was occupied by Reeds Rains (previously Halifax Property Services) until the estate agency business pulled out last year.
Coral Racing, part of the Gala Coral Group and the UK’s third largest betting shop operator, has applied to South Gloucestershire Council for planning permission to erect two satellite dishes on the back of the unit and make minor alterations to the shop frontage.
The company has also applied to the Council for a betting premises licence under section 159 of the Gambling Act 2005.
Subject to being granted permission, the new shop could open as early as 1st May – the date on which the company has asked its requested advertising consent to commence.
The Coral outlet would be the second licensed betting shop in Bradley Stoke, following the opening of a Ladbrokes shop at the Willow Brook Centre in May 2009.
The company already operates shops in Rodway Road, Patchway, and Gloucester Road North, Filton.
Objections to the planning and gambling licence applications must be made by 29th and 30th March respectively.
