Consultation - Gambling Draft Statement of Principles
The Gambling Act 2005 requires the Council to publish and review a Statement of Principles in relation to its duties under the Act. The Statement of Principles must be reviewed every three years.
Gloucester City Council’s current Statement of Principles will expire in January 2016. We therefore must consult and adopt a new Statement.
We have assessed our current Statement of Principles and made a few minor amendments and additions. These can be shown highlighted in grey and include:
- Movement of the area profile map into the main document rather than it appearing as an appendix.
- Mention of Local Risk Assessments. This is in response to the Licence Conditions Codes of Practice from the Gambling Commission.
- An appendix within the Statement of Principles has been added of the tables for maximum stake and maximum prize by category of machine.
As part of the consultation process Gloucester City Council wishes to seek the views of those who may be affected by or have an interest in the policy.
Here is the
