Under the Gambling Act 2005 Leeds City Council licences all casinos, bookmakers, casinos, amusement arcades and bingo halls as well as issuing various other gambling permits.
As part of this legislation we are required to publish a statement of licensing policy which shows how we will promote the three licensing objectives of:
- preventing gambling from being a source of crime or disorder, being associated with crime or disorder or being used to support crime.
- ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way.
- protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.
Notice is hereby given that Leeds City Council will publish its revised Statement of Licensing Policy in accordance with Section 349 of the Gambling Act 2005 on the 1st January 2016.
From this date the policy will be available for inspection in the following places:
St George House
Great George Street
Monday to Friday: 9am to 4pm
The policy will also be available on the council’s website at: www.leeds.gov.uk/licensing
The policy will come into effect on 31st January 2016.
Any queries should be addressed to Entertainment Licensing at the above address or by telephone on 0113 247 4095 or by email to firstname.lastname@example.org
