More than two thirds of local people (68 per cent) are against existing rules that allow betting shops to take over banks and building societies’ premises without planning permission, according to a new opinion poll today. A Local Government Association/ComRes poll found that more than threequarters (76 per cent) of people instead want central government to give councils the powers they have been calling for to improve their high streets in the interests of their communities. The full press release, and examples of councils' work to tackle the issue, is attached. http://www.local.gov.uk/web/guest/home/-/journal_content/56/10161/3495979/NEWS-TEMPLATE Contact: ian.leete@local.gov.uk Tel: 0207 664 3143
