In Enmore NSW on “To continue extended...” at 199 Enmore Road Enmore NSW 2042:

Another 24 gambling venue in Enmore Rd? Seriously? Sad for the area, yet again, after the Warren View (less than 100 metres away) was also just given 24 hour gambling. I suggest that the many boarding houses in the surrounding street offer rich pickings for such predatory behaviour. This application would also seem to suggest that the increasing numbers of bars, ‘record stores’(ie bars), breweries, restaurants, etc etc are attracting punters away from such venues. There is only so much money to go around. Resorting to the desperation of 24 hour gambling is now the only way to keep the punters dribbling in - after everything else has closed. These rather tired venues (such as Sly Fox and Warren View) can claw back a slice of a fast shrinking pie of money. I bet they are hoping the City of Sydney doesn’t change it’s lockout laws - that would really hit them in the hip pocket nerve. This is an application detrimental to the Enmore area and should be denied.
