Consultation: Statement of Gambling Principles 2019 - 2022

Our draft Statement of Gambling Policy 2019-2022 is now available by clicking on the document shown on this webpage and we welcome your comments on the changes we are proposing to make.

The Council of the Isles of Scilly is the Licensing Authority under the Gambling Act 2005. Section 349 of the Act requires that all Licensing Authorities prepare, consult and publish a Statement of Licensing Policy which will be used when exercising its licensing functions.

Before any revision of this Statement of Gambling Policy is published, the Authority must carry out a full consultation - the consultation period is from 12 November 2018 to 5 December 2018. At the end of the consultation period any comments received will be considered and the Policy will be amended as necessary before being approved by Full Council.

All responses to this consultation will be published in full when the final version of the draft policy is presented to council. All identifiable information will be removed before publication.

To submit a response to this consultation please email licensing@scilly.gov.uk or post your response to Licensing Department, Council of the Isles of Scilly, Town Hall, Isles of Scilly, TR21 0LW. All responses should include your name and address and must be received no later than 12 noon on Wednesday 5 December 2018.
