Betting shop bid rejected

RESIDENTS are celebrating after winning the latest battle against a betting shop chain’s plans to open in Grand Parade, Green Lanes.

The premises, at the junction with Chesterfield Gardens, has already been fitted out by the Better betting chain at a cost of £25,000, says Ian Sygrave, chairman of the Harringay Ladder Community Safety Partnership. But at a licensing sub-committee hearing last Wednesday, councillors rejected the application.

Better is expected to appeal the decision at magistrate’s court in due course.

Mr Sygrave said: “We are very pleased to win. I would like to thank all the residents who signed the petition. Everything will now depend on the magistrate’s court hearing.
