Gambling Policy 2013 to 2016
The Council is currently consulting on a temporary re-publication of its current Statement of Gambling Policy (2013 to 2016).
This is an interim consultation pending publication of further statutory guidance from the Gambling Commission, whereby it is proposed that the current policy be republished without amendments. This is because the guidance forms a key part of the policy but will not be published in time for the Council to fulfil its legal obligation to review the current policy by January 2016. However, a full review of the policy and further consultation will take place within 12 months once the essential guidance has been published and incorporated into document.
The closing date for this consultation is 26 October 2015.
Responses to the consultation should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
