Statement of Principles
The Gambling Act 2005 requires each Licensing Authority to determine and publish a statement of Principles at least once every three years. This policy must be published before it carries out any licensing functions under the Act.
The current Gambling policy covers the three-year period that began on 31 January 2019 and as such it is now currently being reviewed. You can view this draft policy, which is instrumental in determining applications that affect gambling.
I hope you take the opportunity to read this document and we would be happy to receive any comments on this policy. The period of consultation runs until Tuesday, 31st August 2021. This is your opportunity to contribute to this important policy document update in order to work towards a vibrant and safe community.
