The Gambling Act regulates all gambling in Great Britain, apart from the National Lottery and spread betting.
The council authorises the provision of facilities for gambling.
Where no licence is in force you may apply for a notice for gambling on your premises.
The council is responsible for issuing alcohol licensed premises, family entertainment centres, prize gaming and clubs.
These do not require a licence, but must be registered with the council.
The Gambling Commission grants licences for commercial gambling and certain lottery managers and promoters.
We are required by the Gambling Act to publish a statement of principles every three years.
