As part of our commitment to delivering the best services possible, we regularly consult with the community on a wide range of proposals and plans. We do this in a number of different ways, including the use of paper questionnaires, electronic consultation and public meetings.

Draft statement of Gambling Act licensing principles 21 May-10 August 2018

Every three years we have to publish a Statement of Principles which guides applicants, licence holders and the public on how the Council will make its decisions under the Gambling Act 2005.  

Our current statement of licensing principles will expire in January 2019 so we have reviewed it and added the following:

  • local area profiles
  • risk assessments
  • safeguarding in licensed premises

We would like the views of residents, Councillors, relevant organisations and licence holders on our draft statement of licensing principles for the next three years. We will consider all consultation responses before a final draft goes to Council for adoption. Please:
