GLA5 consultation response

GLA sets out the principle guidance to local councils on gambling related matters. The drivers for the proposed amendments to the guidance are the need to:

  • reflect recent changes to the social responsibility provisions within the Licence conditions and codes of practice
  • promote collaborative working between licensing authorities and local gambling operators to facilitate a coordinated approach to local issues
  • continue the positive partnership working between the Commission and licensing authorities
  • provide greater clarity about the wide range of powers afforded to licensing authorities to manage local gambling regulation through measures such as their statements of licensing policy.

Relevant to all licensing authorities, gambling operators and those with an interest in the local regulation of gambling.
