Feedback expected 7 May 2018



We, as the Licensing Authority recognise the potential impact of gambling on the communities in the district.  We will work with communities and partners to ensure that our approach to the gambling policy helps to maintain a strong and resilient community. 


Why we are consulting

As a result of changes made to the Gambling Commission's code of practice surrounding social responsibility and revised guidance to Licensing Authorities, substantial amendments have been made to the draft policy.  

The policy will address the concerns of the public to maintain safe and high quality environments and will work together with premises licence operators/holders to assist the thriving and growing local economy whilst seeking to protect vulnerable people from harm.
