Statement of gambling principles

In accordance with the Gambling Act 2005, we have a 'Statement of principles'. This outlines what authorisations premises will need, as well as what standards we expect from these premises. This makes sure that:

  • applicants understand what authorisations they need, what standards are expected of them and where to go for more information
  • our colleagues in the Police, Planning, Environmental Health and the Safeguarding Children Board understand the details of the arrangements
  • residents and their representatives know what options are available to them and how they can get involved.
