Recently the Blackpool Council received plans for the Flaming Grills eatery venue on Festival Retail Park that see Club 3000 Bingo set to move to the venue.
The restaurant has been performing poorly according to an article in the Fleetwood Weekly News and whilst some believed that a Nando’s was set to open in it’s place, it’s Club 3000 Bingo who have secured the building.
Already on the retail park is an Odeon cinema, a gym and a McDonald’s whilst over the road is a Frankie and Benny’s. Being built nearby is the Foxhill Village so it would seem the Club 3000 Bingo will be in the right place.
New Jobs To Be Created By Club 3000 Bingo
The scheme has yet to be approved by the planners but if and when it is, Club 3000 Bingo will be spending £4 million having the venue fitted out to be a bingo club.
It has taken them two years to find a suitable venue and the building itself is set to cost the £2.8 million. This cost will be covered by Cromwell Property Group, documents filed by applicant, Valad European Diversified Fund (Jersey) 14 Limited, showed.
There will be 55 full-time jobs created when the venue opens but there will be a reduction in parking spaces. Currently there are 604 but this will reduce to just 453. However there will be 45 new cycle spaces, 18 new motorbike spaces and 21 more disabled parking spots.
Club 3000 Bingo had considered a number of other sites in the area but all of the following were deemed unsuitable; the former postal delivery office in Abingdon Street in the town centre, the old BHS store in Church Street, and offices in Bickerstaffe Square. The Layton Institute and former Empire Bingo Hall in Haweside Road.
