Gambling Policy Consultation

We are consulting on our Gambling Act 2005 Policy (Statement of Licensing Principles).

The Licensing Authority must legally undertake a review of the policy at the end of each three-year period and the policy is now due for review.

The policy relates to the licensing of betting shops, bingo halls, amusement arcades, etc. In particular, the policy is intended to guide decision makers, applicants, objectors and others regarding the decision making process.

The policy outlines how the Licensing Authority will consider and determine applications under the Gambling Act 2005. It also states how the authority will work to promote the three licensing objectives, which are:

  • Preventing gambling from being a source of crime and disorder, being associated with crime and disorder, or being used to support crime
  • Ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way
  • Protecting children and other vulnerable people from being harmed or exploited by gambling
