If you provide gambling facilities, you may need three different types of licence - an operating licence, a personal licence and a premises licence.
What you need to know
The council is required (by the Gambling Act 2005) to prepare and publish a Gambling Policy every 3 years.
We issue premises licences for the following premises:
- adult gaming centres
- betting shops
- bingo halls
- family entertainment centres
- racing tracks
We also issue permits in respect of gaming machines in pubs and clubs and small society lottery registrations. Pubs and members' clubs that hold a premises licence or club premises certificate under the Licensing Act 2003, may provide gaming machines for use by their customers/members.
What we need to see
We require completed application forms and the correct fee for a gambling premises licence.
