A policy is required to address the three licensing objectives of the new Act, which are:

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

The council's policy must be reviewed and re-published every three years. The Policy was last published May 2020 and reviewed in March 2021.  Please click on the link below to view the policy:
