The Licensing Team Leader presented Members with a report which detailed that the Authority was required, by the Gambling Act 2005, to publish a Statement of Principles that it proposed to apply when exercising its functions under the Act, in the form of a Gambling Policy. This Policy statement must be published every three years. The Council's current Policy statement was in effect from 31 January 2016 and was now due for review.

Members attention was drawn to the summary of changes contained within the report and were advised that there were no major changes. Members were also advised that there would be a consultation period of 4 weeks with relevant agencies and responsible authorities as detailed within the report.

Clarity was sought as to which gambling premises had CCTV. Officers informed the Committee that all casinos had CCTV however Adult Gaming Centres each had their own agreed conditions.

Members were advised that should they have any further comments / suggestions these could be made during the consultation process to the Licensing Department.
