Just when you thought it was safe to go outdoors...

The loathsome Blue Chip Casinos have revived their planning application to try to convert a local pub in my ward into a monstrosity of an all-night casino, supposedly designed to look like an ocean liner. Blue Chip applied for planning permission a year ago and the Council threw out the plans. They tried an appeal to the Planning Inspectorate who also had the good sense to kick it into touch, much to the relief of hundreds of local people who had protested at the notion of this 'thing' appearing in their neighbourhood. When will Blue Chip get the message? We don't want your bloody casino!

The design from hell
