Gambling Policy Consultation

Written on . Posted in Business, Licensing, Regulations

We are required to consult on our Gambling policy every 3 years and we are keen to hear from residents, businesses, licensees and anyone with an interest in the Epping Forest district.

As the licensing authority, Epping Forest District Council must regard the licensing objectives as set out in section 1 of the Act.

The licensing objectives are:

  • 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

Email us your comments to licensing@eppingforestdc.gov.uk or send them to Licensing department, Epping Forest District Council, Corporate Support Services, Civic Offices, High Street, Epping CM16 4BZ.

These will be passed to our licensing committee for consideration.

All comments must be received by 31 January 2016.
