In the North-side suburb of Stafford, locals have been lobbying against the redevelopment of their community bowls club beginning from late last year. The site has been largely unmaintained since 2017, and the new renovation plan is expected to bring in 76 poker machines, which has drawn further attention from locals, as well as politicians and the Office for Liquor and Gaming. 4ZZZ Journalist Catherine Strohfeldt spoke to community locals and politicians to determine the recent changes on the site, with additional reporting from Olivia Martini and Yunri Deng.
