Gambling Act policy (Statement of Principles) 2022

North Kesteven District Council is now consulting on a review of our Gambling Policy (Statement of Licensing Principles). The Gambling Act 2005 requires each licensing authority, in respect of each three-year period, to determine its policy with respect to the exercise of its licensing functions, and to publish a statement of that policy (a “licensing statement”) before the beginning of the period.

The current North Kesteven District Council statement was drawn up adopted by the Authority in January 2019.  We are now required to conduct a period of public consultation on the revisions to the statement of licensing policy, due to be adopted in January 2022.

The draft policy is available as a download on the right hand menu. Details of the amendments are shown in red font.

The consultation runs until 23 August 2021, the final policy will be considered for adoption by the full Council in December 2021.
