£25m casino plan for Middlesbrough

Jomast Developments is to build a £25m casino and hotel project in Middlesbrough having won one of eight UK licences to build a large casino.

It will convert the disused 30,000 sq ft Gurney House, formerly council offices to include a four-star hotel with 160 rooms, a budget hotel with 80- rooms, restaurants and a multi-storey car park around the casino. It expects to start work early next year.

Jomast’s development director, Adam Hearld, said, “ Our vision is to create a major new, casino- based, leisure and entertainment destination that will have far reaching benefits for Middlesbrough.”

The developer will now seek a casino operator, and is preparing a planning application.
