Licensing Committee

To consider the draft Statement of Licensing Principles, The Gambling Local Area Profile, and the Guidance on Undertaking Local Gambling Risk Assessments.

Minutes:

The Court considered a report of the Licensing Committee which recommended agreement of the draft Statement of Licensing Principles; The Gambling Local Area Profile; and the Guidance on Undertaking Local Gambling Risk Assessments.

 

The Gambling Act 2005 requires all licensing authorities to produce and publish a Statement of Licensing Principles (‘policy’). The City Corporation produced its first such statement, as prescribed by the statutory timetable, at the time the Act came into force in January 2007.

 

The legislation requires that all authorities review their policy at least every three years.  This policy was last reviewed in January 2016 and therefore is required to be reviewed by January 2019.

 

The City Corporation has now completed its work on producing a Local Area Profile in order that licensees can fully assess the local risk to the licensing objectives posed by their gambling operations.

 

The updated Policy and the two documents ‘Local Area Profile’ and the ‘Guidance on Undertaking Risk Assessments’ formed the basis of the proposals which went out to consultation.

 

Resolved – That the draft Statement of Licensing Principles; The Gambling Local Area Profile; and the Guidance on Undertaking Local Gambling Risk Assessments be agreed.
