Gambling Act 2005
The Council is undertaking a review of its Statement Licensing Policy under the Gambling Act.
The Gambling Act 2005 requires that Licensing Authorities publish a Statement of Licensing Policy which sets out the various factors that we will take into account and consider in the administration and determination of applications made under these Acts. These will include the way it deals with applications for premises licences for betting offices, adult gaming and family entertainment centres and when granting permits for gaming and gaming machines in clubs and pubs and small society lotteries.
The current Statement of Gambling Policy became effective in January 2019 having been approved at full Council.
In accordance with the Gambling Act, the Council must review the Statement of Licensing Policy every three years. Submit comment here.
The council is not recommending any significant changes to the existing policy. The proposed revised policy can be viewed here via Caerphilly - Caerphilly County Borough.
As a part of the consultation exercise, we intend to contact those persons or organisations that are likely to be affected by the policy to seek their views.
The consultation will run between the 8 October 2021 - 8 November 2021
