Discussions About New Sudbury Casino Under Way

There have been so many different casino projects and developments over the past year that the Canadian industry seems to be growing in earnest. This is something that can play a major role in the process of enhancing the industry, as well as improving the options players have across provinces. Well, it seems that the Ontario city of Greater Sudbury could be the next on the list of developments.

The plan is for a proposed arena and casino complex to be built, but there has to be a dialogue before work is able to get underway. It should come as no surprise that the company spearheading this venture and development plan is Gateway Casinos, perhaps the most influential player in the Canadian casino industry. Gateway has overseen numerous developments in the past few months, including a recent planned project at Wasaga Beach.

It is clear that this Sudbury project is another real way for them to improve and grow their empire in the best possible way. It seems that plans for the controversial Kingsway Entertainment District in Sudbury have taken a more complex turn for all concerned. We heard news back in September that the Kingsway project was beginning to gain traction, and seemed to be dependent upon the decisions of the town and its Mayor.

However, there have been setbacks in the development of the casino complex because there seems to be a lot of red tape that needs to be cut through. This week has marked the beginning of a dialogue, and it is thought that the decision will be going before a tribunal. Due to the complexities of rule changes, and cutting through a fair amount of red tape, it is clear that there are going to be a lot of steps in the process before a conclusion is reached.

Indeed, it seems that the complexities and minutiae surrounding the proposed project are going to need to go before the Local Planning Appeals Tribunal. This is something that seems to be necessary due to a change in laws, and it is imperative that the project gets underway in accordance with the Planning Act.

The appeals are scheduled to take longer than expected, due in large part to the complexities of the process. As a city, Sudbury remains confident it will overcome the challenges presented, and win the KED. The 12 appeals will need to be worked through, and the C$100m arena, and C$60m casino project will hinge on the outcome of these hearings. Furthermore, it seems that the final decision may not be made by the LPAT. James McKenzie, associate chair for the tribunal said, “If it finds that the appeals have merit, then the matter would be sent back to the council for them to reconsider and make a new decision.”

The controversial plan for the Kingsway Entertainment District has not been welcomed by all in the Sudbury area. In fact, there was talk of taking it to a vote, and if the majority of residents had said no, then the development was not going to go ahead. Tellingly, there was no vote, and it seems as though planned work is going to be starting anyway. So, this is bound to have ruffled a few feathers, and we will need to wait for the results of the tribunal to know more.
