Slough residents vote against allowing casinos in town
Slough residents have rejected the idea of introducing casinos to their town.
Following a public consultation 71% voted in favour of upholding the Berkshire town's current "no casino" policy.
A council spokesperson said considerations for not having a casino were "the effect on vulnerable people, personal and religious beliefs".
The Berkshire town's policy has been in place since 2006 with a public consultation every three years.
Slough Borough Council's licensing committee is expected uphold residents' views at its meeting on 30 May.
Slough previously fell under a gambling law that prohibited casinos in towns with populations under 150,000, but this rule was quashed in 2007.
