    Gambling

    diceThe Gambling Act 2005 came into effect on 1 September 2007. It comprehensively modernised the law on gambling. The regulatory system governs the provision of all gambling in Great Britain, other than the National Lottery and spread betting.

    Licensing authorities have responsibility for granting premises licences for:

    • casinos
    • bingo halls 
    • betting offices
    • adult gaming centres 
    • licensed family entertainment centres

    and granting permits for: 

    • gaming and gaming machines in clubs 
    • unlicensed family entertainment centres 
    • gaming machines in alcohol licensed premises

    and authorising:

    • the temporary use of premises

    Fees

    Fees are payable for applications. See 'Premises licence fees' below.

    Gambling policy

    It is a requirement of the Gambling Act 2005 that licensing authorities review their Gambling Policy, known as a ‘Statement of Principles’, every three years. We are now consulting on the draft policy for 2013 - 2016.  Consultation ends on the 29 November 2012.  When complete, all necessary amendments will be made and the final document presented to Full Council for approval on the 13 December 2012.

    The draft is available by clicking on the attachment below named 'Draft EHDC Gambling Act Policy Jan 2013' below and if you wish to comment please email: licensing@easthants.gov.uk or write to: The Principal Licensing Officer, Licensing Department, EHDC, Penns Place, Petersfield, Hampshire GU31 4EX
