North East Tombola Takeover Creates 30 New Jobs

North East Tombola Takeover Creates 30 New Jobs

Proposals for major gaming form Tombola to take over a former music venue in Sunderland have been given the green light this week, in a move that will create an extra 30 jobs in the area. The plans will allow the form to continue recruiting while their older premises situated at Wylam Wharf and Quayside House are renovated. 

Sunderland City Council’s planning authority agreed to the proposals as Tombola is considered to be an “important employer within the city.” Sunderland’s Grade II listed Bonded Warehouse was previously a huge music venue, but the historic venue closed its doors for good earlier this year due to the on-going pandemic.

In a report from the planners, they said: “It is recognised that the proposals would represent an extension of the operations currently undertaken by Tombola from their headquarters on an adjacent site. Due to this inherent link to the adjacent land use and to facilitate the efficient operations of an important and growing business within the city, it is considered that material planning considerations exist to justify the development in this location.

Furthermore, it is recognised that the application site is located within the urban core a very short distance from the city centre boundary and would represent a relatively modest quantum of floorspace.” And they would “ensure the continued use of the heritage asset which may assist in its ongoing maintenance and upkeep.”
