Every three years the Council is required by the Gambling Act 2005 to review the Gambling Act 2005 Statement of Licensing Principles (Licensing Policy), and to consult upon any changes proposed. The three yearly review is taking place this year and officers have reviewed the current policy and made suggestions in line with changes to Gambling Commissions Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice and drafted a more up to date and comprehensive Policy.
The next step is to consult with the public and other bodies.
The period for any comments to be received will end on 23 October 2018 after which a further report will be presented to the Licensing Committee incorporating any amendments that may be suggested as part of the consultation exercise with a view to the Policy being adopted by Full Council so that the policy is in place by January 2019.
Feedback on the draft Statement of Principles must reach this Licensing Authority no later than 23 October 2018, indicating clearly the paragraph(s) your response refers to.
Also, when responding please state whether you are responding as an individual, representing a business that may be affected or representing the views of an organisation. If responding on behalf of an organisation please make it clear who that organisation represents. If responding as an individual please mention your own interest.
Please note responses may be made public or published in a summary or responses to the consultation unless you state clearly that you wish your response or name to be treated confidentially. Confidential responses will be included in any statistical summary of comments received. If you are replying by e-mail unless you specifically include a request to the contrary in the main text of your submission to us, we will assume your consent overrides any confidentiality disclaimer that is generated by your organisation’s IT system.
Please note all responses to be included must be named responses and not anonymous. We will not consider any anonymous responses in this consultation.
All responses should be returned either by post to:-
