Review of the Gambling Policy Statement of Principles under the Gambling Act 2005.

The overall control of gambling in the UK rests with the Gambling Commission along with the responsibility for granting operating and personal licences.

Under the Gambling Act, Stockport Council must review, consult and publish a Statement of Principles in relation to gambling policy every 3 years. As part of this process, the Gambling Act requires all Licensing Authorities to consult on the policy before publication. The consultation is due to take place for 8 weeks between 15th August – 10th October 2018.

The last review took place in 2015 and was published in 2016. The next review is now due, with a view to the policy being published on 2nd January 2019 and coming into force on 31st January 2019. The review has been carried out and makes no significant changes, however minor amendments have been made to simplify the wording and align further with AGMA policies across the region.
