Gambling Act - Annual Review of Fees 2021/22

Report of the Director of Markets & Consumer Protection.


Members considered a report of the Director of Markets & Consumer Protection concerning the setting of the annual fees for those premises requiring a licence under the Gambling Act 2005. 


It was noted that the proposed fees would result in less income compared with previous years due to a reduction in the forecast for the number of gambling premises in the City of London. 


A Member noted reductions in the trade and queried if this was due to COVID or the growth of online betting shops. Members were advised that the change in trade was not COVID related, but was likely a result of the increase in online betting as this was more lucrative.


RESOLVED – That Members agree the proposed fees for 2021/22 as set out in Appendix 1.
