PADDY POWER GRANTED GAMING LICENCE
In the face of strong opposition from local residents the Gambling Act Sub-Committee approved the gaming licence for the planning Paddy Power branch at 620 High Road Leytonstone.
As previously reported the Planning Officers, under new legislation, have already refused an planning application for change of use to a betting shop.
Residents have raised the strongest possible opposition to the continued, apparently, avaricious advance of betting offices across Waltham Forest.
The last ditch in this fight will be decided in Whitehall if Paddy Power, as suspected, appeals the decision of the Planning Officers.
