FIRE­BRAND coun­cil­lor Dawn Crichlow is cel­e­brat­ing vic­tory af­ter con­tro­ver­sial plans for a South­port casino were canned.

The plan, sug­gested by Mayor Tom Tate, would have in­volved the de­mo­li­tion and re­lo­ca­tion of the South­port Bowls Club.

The move put her at odds with Cr Tate and sparked com­mu­nity protests.

Cr Crichlow said she would cel­e­brate her vic­tory with a drink at the bowls club.

“This is just ex­cel­lent news and I went to the bowls club to let the peo­ple know about the win,” she said. “I still ques­tion the need for another casino.”
