The plans show development potential for a derelict site
Designs for a 35m casino, hotel and leisure complex aimed at regenerating a Norfolk town have been revealed.

Great Yarmouth was one of eight places in England and Wales to be granted permission by the government in 2007 to build a large casino.

Pleasure and Leisure Corp - which owns the town's Pleasure Beach - said the development called The Edge, could give jobs to 1,000 people.

A borough council study is being held to find the best site for the casino.

Rival casino operators have expressed interest in running a casino in the town and competition to build the venue is expected to be stiff.

Pleasure and Leisure's plans would see a derelict former caravan holiday park south of the Pleasure Beach completely redeveloped.
