Temporary & Occasional Use Notices

Temporary Use Notices

A gambling operator may use a premise temporarily for gambling, where no licence is in force. These include hotels, exhibition centres, conference centres and sporting venues.

The notice allows gambling to take place at the premises for up to 21 days during any 12 month period.


How to apply

Download, complete and return the appropriate application form to the Community Wellbeing Team, and enclose a fee of £500, made payable to Gloucester City Council.


Occasional Use Notices

An occasional use notice can be used if betting is to take place for 8 days or less in a calendar year on the ‘track’ and there is no track betting licence in place.

The venue occupier or events administrator should give notice to the council’s licensing authority and the police. No objection may be raised and there is no time restriction on when the notice must be given – it could be given on the day of the event.
