The London Plan does not include a specific policy for casinos. Policy 4.6 of the Plan deals with entertainment uses and will be a relevant policy consideration for casino development proposals alongside Local Plan policies. As a 'main town centre use', London Plan policy 2.15 (town centres), 4.7 (retail and town centre development) and 4.8 (retail and related facilities and services) may also apply, alongside other Plan policies relevant to all development proposals including parking, design, access, energy etc.
