Gambling Policy - Statement of Principles

The Gambling Act 2005 requires the licensing authority to produce and then review every three years a gambling policy statement of principles outlining its approach to the enforcement of the legislation.

A revised policy has to be published by the beginning of January 2019 to come in to force on the 31st January 2019.

Before this can happen a period of consultation must take place.

At the end of the consultation period the draft policy and any representations received will be considered by the Council before the final policy is published.

The only difference between this policy and the existing policy is the addition of two new paragraphs (4.6 and 29.3).

Anybody that wishes to make representations should do so by emailing
