Gambling Policy Consultation

Gambling has changed in recent years, traditional methods such as betting shops are being replaced with online gambling.

The Gambling Commission regulate online gambling.

The council recognises we have a role to play in minimizing the harmful effects of gambling and produce a Gambling act 2003 Statement of Principles, commonly known as the Gambling Policy. We review this policy every 3 years.

There are few changes as there have been no legislative changes in the last three years. We will introduce the revived Gambling Policy in 2022.

View the Draft Gambling Policy.
