Genting Casino in Terminus Terrace, Southampton, wants to expand its gaming floor into the currently disused first and second floor at the Grade II listed building Terminus House.
The plan from Genting is for a new gaming area with a bar lounge on the first floor and staff areas on the second. A lift would be needed to provide wheelchair access to the first and second floors.
The casino application said: “The first and second floors have been disused for at least 13 years and there is no commercial demand for the office space. Unoccupied, the unused areas of the property have deteriorated. Keeping a listed building fully occupied and in commercially viable use is the best way of ensuring its long-term care and preservation.
“The internal alteration to the casino, and extending the casino use into the vacant area, provides an improved customer offer and facilities, improved staff facilities, and wheelchair access throughout.”
