In the heart of Hull’s city center lies a disused pub that may soon undergo a transformation into a 24-hour gambling center pending approval from local authorities. Once known as Yates’ Wine Lodge and more recently as the Kingston Tavern, the historic establishment on Paragon Street has caught the attention of JR Planning Consultants, the driving force behind the proposed redevelopment.

With aspirations to breathe new life into the area, JR Planning Consultants sees the conversion as a potential catalyst for positive economic growth. The plans, meticulously crafted, have been formally presented to Hull City Council for their deliberation.

The venerable 19th-century building, a relic of Hull’s past, has remained devoid of activity since 2012, serving as a testament to changing times. In a previous attempt to revitalize the space, plans were approved last year to transform it into a venue accommodating food, retail, or café ventures, alongside the addition of thirteen residential units. However, the realities of the property market have since forced a reevaluation of these proposals, leading to a shift in focus towards the realm of gambling and entertainment.

According to the latest vision outlined in the plans, the establishment would undergo a metamorphosis to house gambling machines and bingo facilities, aligning with the character and demands of the locale. Despite potential apprehensions, JR Planning Consultants maintains that the proposed venture is well-suited to the area and promises to enrich the city’s urban landscape.
