Gambling Act - Annual Review of Fees 2018/19

Report of the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection.



Members considered a report of the Director of Markets and Consumer Protection in respect of the 2018/19 annual review of fees for premises requiring a license under the Gambling Act 2005.


Members were advised that the City Corporation was not allowed to make a profit, but the fees were worked out in line with the factors taken into account when calculating the fee for a renewal of a gambling (betting shop) license as laid out in Appendix 2 of the report. 


It was noted that there was a mistake in the proposed fee structure 2018/19 (Appendix 1) and that the proposed fee for a new application with provisional statement Bet Shop should be £917.91 in line with similar application types, not £750. Members were advised that these were best estimates as these were new applications.  


RESOLVED – Members agreed the proposed fees for 2018/19 as set out in Appendix 1 (column 6) once the error has been edited to £917.91.
