Consultation on the Draft Gambling Act Policy Statement of Principles

Consultation on the Draft Gambling Act Policy Statement of Principles

Starts date: 24th September 2018
End date: 26th November 2018

We are consulting on our Draft Gambling Act Policy Statement of Principles 2019-2022 and would like to hear your comments on it. We are required by law to publish a new policy every three years.

The draft policy is substantially the same as the current statement. However, some limited amendments have been made, the most significant of which is more detail on local risk assessments. There is also comment on the subject of the maximum stake for fixed odds betting machines.

How do I comment?

To comment on the draft document, please email your comments to licensingact2003@liverpool.gov.uk or write to: Liverpool City Council, Licensing and Public Protection, Cunard Building, Water Street, Liverpool, L3 1AH.

All the comments we receive will be published on this site in a report which will be submitted to the Licensing and Gambling Committee in Autumn 2018. If you wish your comments to remain anonymous please make this clear in your response.

The deadline for all responses is 26th November 2018.

What happens next?

After the consultation period closes, all the comments will be considered by the Licensing and Gambling Committee which will then present their recommendations to a meeting of the full council.
