Christine M commented

This proposal is absolutely not in the interest of the local community. The community needs more family friendly venues and/or entertainment precincts and not 'gambling dens' which only add to community economic hardship and which have a negative impact on multiple people. For a business that has been supported by the local community, it is sad to see that they are actively trying to openly exploit the very community that has patronised it over the years. I wonder if the hotel, from any profits of this (should it be approved) will set aside a percentage of takings for donation to support agencies to help impacted families? I think not! The hotel itself needs to rethink its own proposal. Many business have found, to their detriment, that the loss of widespread community support in the long term is more costly than short term gains.
