Council seeks developer for 'racino' site

Wed 17 October 2012, 5:24 pm

Reading Council has appointed Hicks Baker to market a 21 acre development opportunity near Madejksi Stadium and Green Park, it has been reported.

The move follows the termination of plans for a speedway and casino scheme on the site north of Island Road, website CoStar said.

It said Stadia UK had first mooted plans for a “racino” – a speedway and greyhound stadium with a casino –  six years ago.

CoStar added that Reading was still keen to see the construction of a speedway at the site, but would open up the possibility of other uses.
