Fred Done aka Done Brothers aka Betfred (who last year bought the Tote for £7b) invites you to take a punt
We regret to inform you that the Betfred saga is far from over. Having been turned down a second time by Lewisham Planning, they are now appealing again to the Government Planning Inspectorate in Bristol.
Comments previously submitted to the Council as objections have been forwarded to the Planning Inspectorate and will automatically be considered by the Inspector.
Any further observations you wish to make should be emailed by 17 February 2012 to: email@example.com. Address your email to Ms Vicky Williams, and quote reference APP/C5690/A/11/2168006/NWF.

Here's the Deptford Betting Map – updated since Better at no.14 became Jennings very recently. (Hales Gallery at no.70 was originally bought by Jennings who quickly sold out to Coral).

If you're unfamiliar with the history of Betfred's attempts to grab a share of the profits being made by their rivals already operating on Deptford High Street, you can read all our posts about last year's campaign against them here. Alternatively, for a brief summary, pop over to the Deptford Dame.
