Current consultations


We believe that consultation is crucial in helping us make decisions which will affect the Borough and that consultation has a key role in informing and influencing our decision making and activities. Listed below are our current consultations:

We are reviewing our current Gambling Statement of Principles which came into force in January 2016.

We have produced a Draft Statement for consultation. The consultation period runs until 28 September 2018.

The Draft Statement document has been sent out to a wide range of consultees for comment including Ward Members, existing licensees, partner organisations and services within the Council.

You can view and/or download the draft statement on our Gambling Act page.
