Die Gautengse dobbelraad het Sun International Donderdag per brief laat weet sy aansoek is goedgekeur om sy dobbellisensie vir die Morula Sun-casino in Mabopane, noord van Pretoria, na die Menlyn Maine-kompleks in die ooste van die stad te skuif. Die huidige personeel sal die opsie gegee word om by die nuwe casino te werk.
Busse sal die werknemers van die Mabopane-omgewing na die nuwe ligging aanry. Een van die grootste besware teen die verskuiwing van die casino na Menlyn Maine is dat dit direk aan die Glen High School sal grens. Openbare verhore is in April by die NG kerk Moreletapark gehou waar verskeie mense wat teen die casino gekant is hul besware daarteen kon laat hoor.
Sowat 6 besware is destyds ingedien. Onder hulle is groot gemeenskapskerke in die ooste van Pretoria, skole, kolleges, aftreeoorde en sakeondernemings. Nog besware sluit in geraasvlakke, dat die verkeer drasties sal toeneem en dat dwelmverslawing ook sal toeneem.
MickeyD RIP. Joined Oct 4, Messages , The group has submitted an application to the Gauteng Gambling Board to move the casino and resort to Menlyn, in a proposed R3 billion project. But again the social cost in the broader community, is it beneficial or not? Chief executive Graeme Stephens said the decision came after a prescribed public participation process in terms of the Gauteng Gambling Act. The transfer of the licence from Morula in Mabopane would enable the company to build a R3 billion urban entertainment centre at Menlyn Maine.

Menlyn Maine - a large mixeduse 'green city' development of offices, residential units, niche retail stores and leisure facilities - was originally approved in terms of this framework and, according to the member of the mayoral committee for city planning and economic development Subesh Pillay, a subsequent request from the developers for the removal of restrictive conditions and rezoning was granted in February.
According to the minutes of the tribunal, dated June 24, , there was a lack of suitable development land in the east and south-east of the city. If the application is approved, the metro council would obtain increased revenue in terms of property tax from the property, the tribunal heard. The application won the support of a number of council divisions. While some residents' associations and interest groups have raised concerns about the development, which will include the biggest casino in Gauteng, Sun International says as many as 10 jobs will be created during construction and a further 2 jobs will result from operations afterwards.
However, a group of 22 residents' associations and interest groups, known collectively as the Joint Action Group, have expressed dissatisfaction with the City of Tshwane about what they call 'underhanded' ways in which the municipality dealt with the Menlyn Node Spatial Development Framework and developments in the Menlyn area in general. Now, with news of a casino development as part of Time Square within Menlyn Maine, members of the group have once again questioned the way in which the matter has been dealt with by the municipality and may submit an objection to the application to the Gauteng Gambling Board for the transfer of Sun International's licence from Morula Sun to Menlyn.
The chief executive of the Tshwane Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Piet du Plooy, believes that the development would be good for business in the area while the member of the mayoral committee responsible for economic development, Subesh Pillay, said additional employment would be created during and after construction.
Sun International's proposal also includes a broad-based black economic empowerment component and is expected to generate considerable revenue for the government by way of taxes and gaming levies. The company stated that with a casino a key part of its proposal, the City of Tshwane and the Gauteng provincial government 'can feel confident that, with Sun International, it would be working with a company with a proven reputation of operating licensed casinos in urban environments; one whose operating practices meet and exceed internationally accepted standards'.
One of Sun International's reasons for the proposed relocation of the Morula Sun casino licence to Time Square was that the introduction of new casinos in Gauteng had affected 'extremely negatively' Morula Sun, which was now considered to be too far out for large sectors of the Gauteng market.
As a result, the Morula Sun's revenue has declined dramatically and the casino has been reduced in size to its current level of slot machines and 12 gaming tables. The proposed new development will comprise a five-star hotel, a casino, international conference centre, restaurant, bars, parking facilities and a retail precinct.
The casino, to be designed around a time theme, will have 2 slot machines and 60 tables to start with, but this could be increased by a further 1 slot machines and 40 gaming tables should demand arise. The luxury hotel, which will be situated adjacent to the casino, will have rooms over six floors including 10 luxury suites on the upper levels while an entertainment complex will accommodate up to 8 patrons for concerts, shows and exhibitions.
According to Sun International, no jobs will be lost with the relocation of the casino licence from Morula Sun to Time Square. It is estimated that 10 jobs will be created during construction and 2 jobs will be sustained during operations. This calculation excludes jobs created and sustained by suppliers to the complex, by the tenants and providers of goods.
As part of its proposal, the company has presented a range of social development projects in which it says it will invest R30 million over three years. Search Property. For Sale To Let.

Morula Sun had for some time experienced a decline in revenue due primarily to its relatively inaccessible location and the growth of non-casino gambling activities in its catchment area.
It will bring to the area an urban entertainment facility on a scale it warrants and deserves, to serve local residents and visitors. Sun International said it expected that in addition to significant job creation, the development would generate considerably more revenue for the provincial and national government by way of taxes and gaming levies.
It is anticipated that about R1. The total estimated revenue to the government from the project over a five-year period is estimated at R2. A primary concern with relocating to Menlyn Maine is for existing staff at Morula, and the impact the move could have on the surrounding communities of Mabopane and Soshanguve.
Sun International said staff would be offered employment at the new facility, with transport arrangements implemented.

Sun International could face a huge development bill, equivalent to roughly a quarter of its market capitalisation, if it's allowed to move Morula Sun casino from Mabopane to the more vibrant surrounds of Menlyn in Tshwane.
The Morula Casino, built in the late s, has suffered revenue declines in recent years as its location is not as central as other urban Gauteng casinos. Sun International's chief executive Graeme Stephens says the casino has been competing against growing electronic bingo and limited payout machine operations.
In the six months to end-December, Morula generated revenue of Rm and operating profits of just R10m. Stephens says nothing further can be done to reverse the Morula decline. The rub, though, is that for Sun International to shift its Morula casino licence to the more viable eastern suburbs of Tshwane it will have to participate in the new large-scale mixed-use development, the R8bn "Green City" project at Menlyn Maine.
Sun International will invest R3bn in the Time Square entertainment node. The new Menlyn casino will have 3, slot machines and tables but will initially open with 2, slots and 60 tables. Most of the jobs will be transferred from Morula. Stephens says the company's market research shows a demand for the hotel and convention space in Tshwane as well as the proposed entertainment arena. The development cost offset at Morula will probably be keenly gauged by the JSE's largest casino group, Tsogo Sun, which could benefit if proposals to allow an existing Western Cape casino licence to be transferred to Cape Town materialise.
