What we are consulting on
The Council is consulting on its updated Statement of Licensing Principles under the Gambling Act 2005. The policy outlines the principles we will apply when carrying out our functions under the Act.
The Gambling Commission is responsible for licensing operators and individuals who provide gambling and betting facilities. Cheshire West and Chester has a duty under the Gambling Act 2005 to license premises where gambling is to take place and to license certain other activities such as issuing permits and registering small society lotteries.
Every Licensing Authority must develop, consult on and publish a Statement of its Licensing Principles every three years. The Statement of Principles sets out the principles which Cheshire West and Chester will apply in exercising its licensing functions under the Act.
