City of Delta
Through an Expression of Interest (EOI) process, BCLC selected the City of Delta in November 2016 as its preferred host community for a potential new gambling and entertainment facility in Metro Vancouver’s South of the Fraser region.
Since then, BCLC has provided Gateway Casinos & Entertainment Limited with approval to relocate the Newton Community Gaming Centre in Surrey to the site of the current Delta Town and Country Inn.
Gateway has submitted a comprehensive proposal to the City of Delta for its consideration. The proposal – which details the size, scope and amenities of the potential gambling and entertainment facility – requires approval from the City of Delta in order for the development to proceed.
BCLC and Gateway Casinos and Entertainment are committed to engaging with the community regarding proposed plans. As such, five information sessions were held at various locations in Delta in November, December and January which gave residents an opportunity to see details of Gateway’s proposal and speak with representatives from BCLC and Gateway Casinos and Entertainment.
As required by the Gaming Control Act, the City of Delta must also seek and consider community input prior to approving a potential gambling facility proposal from BCLC. As a result, the City hosted three additional public information meetings across locations in Delta and Ladner from February 1 – 15, 2018. This provided another opportunity for Delta residents to engage with City, BCLC and Gateway Casinos representatives.
Following this series of public information meetings, Delta City Council began to formally consider a gambling facility proposal for the Delta Town and Country Inn. On April 9, the City completed First and Second readings for the project, and unanimously voted to move forward to the next step of the process, which provides Delta residents with the opportunity to voice their opinions at a public hearing. The public hearing is scheduled for May 1, 2018 and will be held at the Ladner Community Centre at 6:00pm.
