There is a new plan for building a casino on the Gold Coast. The ASF Corporation wants to continue developing the project of launching a casino on the Gold Coast and will soon forward a new proposal to the Queensland Government.
Anthony Lynham, State Development Minister, suggests there are however some conditions that need to be fulfilled, like the environmental requirements and the public’s approval.
He expressed his confidence in the future of the Gold Coast as a region that can attract tourists and foreign investors, especially from Asia.
Lynham addressed an even more serious issue. In order to get funds for the $600 million project developers want to implement the “boutique casino license”, an act that does not exist at the moment in the state’s legislation. The government does not seem too eager to give this bill the green light.
Currently, there are three casino licenses in effect, they are all related to the ASF Corporation, and Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk has advised developers to go on with their projects.
Mayor of the Gold Coast, Tom Tate, proposed that the disbanded region of the old Southport Hospital be used for the future casino resort.
