We are in the process of drafting and consulting on a new licensing policy under the Gambling Act 2005.

Our current statement of licensing policy under the Gambling Act commenced in January 2016 and expires on the 31 January 2019.  We are currently in the process of drafting and consulting on a new policy for 2019 to 2022.

We have produced a draft licensing policy under the Gambling Act 2005 for 2019-2022

We would be very grateful for any comments and feedback that you have.

Proposed changes

Any additions and changes to the draft policy are shown in the policy document in bold red font.  The main changes to the policy include:

  • additional detail on what the council expects applicants and licence holders to include in their local risk assessment
  • additional information on child protection and safeguarding matters
