The Policy is reviewed every three years and this review has taken account of any changes in legislation, regulations and guidance. The revised Policy is attached as Appendix A and is being presented to the Executive for recommendation to Council for adoption.

The Policy sets out the standards and criteria for applications received according to the Gambling Act and how those applications will be determined, and the licensing objectives promoted.
RESOLVED that having considered the revised Gambling Policy, as detailed in Appendix A to the report, the Executive recommends the policy to Council for adoption.
