Royal Amusements, a casino chain with locations throughout West Yorkshire in Sheffield, has asked permission from the Sheffield Council to open its newest location on the ground floor of 9 Fargate in the heart of the city.

A nail salon will be converted into a new gambling establishment by the casino.

Slot machines, bingo and other activities are available in its facilities.

Agents RR Planning, on behalf of Royal Amusements, said: “There are no physical changes proposed to the shopfront and there will be no impact on the existing shopping frontage and an active frontage will be maintained.

“There will be no impact on the amenity of any nearby occupiers. The proposed change of use will also contribute to the daytime and evening economy.”

Only one public comment has been made so far and it comes from a resident of Crookes' Lydgate Lane.

In their objection, they said: “With the regeneration of Fargate underway and the goal to turn it into a high-quality events and cultural space, this seems to fly smack in the face of that goal. We don’t need Fargate to become an extension of Haymarket.

“A building of this type would surely be better suited as a cafe or restaurant, and be more in keeping with the goals for the area.”
