Gambling Act - Applications and Licences
Please Note: The Council no longer accepts cash payments for applications.

The Gambling Act 2005 provides the regime for licensing and regulation of commercial gambling in the UK. The Act requires Licensing Authorities to produce a Statement of Gambling Principles every three years. The fourth version of this statement came into effect on 14 January 2016 following adoption at full Council on 13 January 2016.
The Statement of Gambling Principles sets out the policies that the Licensing Authority will apply when making decisions on applications or notifications made under the Gambling Act 2005. Adopted Statement of Gambling Licensing Policy 2018-2021 (PDF, 1MB)
Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org should you have any queries, or if you wish to obtain a hard copy of the Policy.
