Appeal: Bingo hall preferred to ongoing vacancy


Plans to open an electronic bingo centre in a prime shopping location in Walsall town centre have been approved after an inspector judged the development preferable to the building remaining unoccupied.

The development would occupy a three-storey building on Bridge Street, a primary shopping location and designated conservation area, which is currently empty. The proposal was originally blocked by the council due to concerns regarding its suitability as a non-retail business, its potential visual impact on the conservation area and worries about anti-social behaviour.
