A review of the current Gambing Statement for the city is now underway until the 29th September.
As part of the statutory requirement to review the city's Gambling Statement of Principles every 3 years, the City Council is proposing an interim review with some minor amendments, including changing the date and removing out of date information.
The council will be consulting for 4 weeks from 1st September. They are also in the process of re-writing the Gambling Statement of Principles in light of the forthcoming changes to the Licensing Conditions and Code of Practice (LCCP) and Guidance for Local Authorities (GLA), to incorporate the new social responsibility requirements which come into force in April 2016 for which they will carry out a 3 month consultation.
The Council as a licensing authority would like to take this opportunity to exercise its duty to consult with businesses and individuals prior to determining and producing the revised statement.
The attached a link to the current statement sets out the approach to the council functions, and how the objectives of the Gambling Act will be meet. These include: keeping crime out of gambling, ensuring it is fair and open, and protecting children and vulnerable people. http://www.brighton-hove.gov.uk/content/gambling-act-2005
