2. New statement of licensing policy under the Gambling Act 2005

In the latter part of 2015 we carried out a consultation where members of the public and a wide range of organisations and individuals with an interest in gambling had the opportunity to make comments about our revised statement of licensing policy under the Gambling Act 2005.

Following this consultation, our statement of licensing policy under the Gambling Act 2005 was adopted by Full Council on the 16th December and came into effect on the 31 January 2016 for the following 3 years.

This policy provides the framework for all decisions on applications relating to the Gambling Act 2005 and the way we carry out our functions in relation to the legislation and is also intended to provide advice and guidance.
