Statement of Licensing Principles 2019 - 2022

The Gambling Act 2005 makes it a duty for a local authority to carry out its functions under the Act with a view to promoting the three licensing objectives:
  • 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, and
  • Protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling
The purpose of a Local Authorities 'Statement of Licensing Principles' is to detail how the authority will comply with that duty. The current statement for each of our areas may be found by clicking on the relevant area name:
