The Council carries out consultation to shape our policies and services, and ensure they meet the needs of our residents. Everyone should have the opportunity to have their say on issues that affect them.

We are currently consulting on:

Draft statement of Gambling Act licensing principles 21 May-10 August

Every three years we have to publish a Statement of Principles which guides applicants, licence holders and the public on how the Council will make its decisions under the Gambling Act 2005.  

Our current statement of licensing principles will expire in January 2019 so we have reviewed it and added the following:

  • local area profiles
  • risk assessments
  • safeguarding in licensed premises

We would like the views of residents, Councillors, relevant organisations and licence holders on our draft Statement of licensing principles for the next three years. We will consider all consultation responses before a final draft goes to Council for adoption. Please:
