summary: Process • The Casino Advisory Panel was set up by the Secretary for State for Culture Media and Sport to make recommendations to her on where new casinos (one regional, eight large and eight small) allowed by the Gambling Act 2005 should be located. • The Panel called for proposals from local authorities in January 2006. In May 2006 the Panel issued a provisional shortlist of proposals for further examination on which it then collected further written and oral evidence. That included, in August and September 2006, a round of examinations in public for the seven areas shortlisted for the regional casino. The Panel moved to final consideration and evaluation of that evidence and its recommendation making and report writing phase in the final quarter of 2006. Recommended area for a regional casino • After careful consideration of the proposals and all the relevant evidence against our remitted criteria, we recommend that the area in which a regional casino should be licensed is the City of Manchester. Recommended areas for eight large casinos • After careful consideration of the proposals and all the relevant evidence against our remitted criteria, we recommend that the areas in which large casinos should be licensed are: Borough of Great Yarmouth - City of Kingston-upon-Hull - City of Leeds - Borough of Middlesbrough - City of Milton Keynes - London Borough of Newham - Borough of Solihull - City of Southampton Recommended areas for eight small casinos • After careful consideration of the proposals and all the relevant evidence against our remitted criteria, we recommend that the areas in which small casinos should be licensed are: - Bath and North East Somerset District - Dumfries and Galloway District - East Lindsey District - Borough of Luton - Borough of Scarborough - County Borough of Swansea - Borough of Torbay - Metropolitan Borough of Wolverhampton The type and geographical distribution of all the recommended proposals is illustrated on the following map.
