The gambling industry is a scourge on inner city communities, preying on vulnerable people and bleeding badly needed money out of some of the most marginalised individuals, families and communities in our city. We should have zero tolerance for the very lucrative gambling industry exploiting planning loopholes in order to freely advertise in the city. My motion to the Planning SPC makes important progress towards this.
