Licensing Authorities - renewals of Licensing Authority Policy Statements under the Gambling Act 2005 due January 2025 Published Date: 15/04/2024

The Gambling Commission is reminding Licensing Authorities of the timescales for renewal of Licensing Policy Statements under the Gambling Act 2005.

A message from the Commission states:

'As required by the Gambling Act 2005 each Licensing Authority is required to renew their Statement every 3 years. The renewal date in this current cycle is January 2025. The Commission is advising that you should make plans as to how to conduct this renewal process.

'Given the ongoing consultations regarding the Gambling Act it is very unlikely that we will be able to amend the Guidance to Licensing Authorities document in sufficient time for you to incorporate changes within your own Statement.

'Whilst it is a matter for local determination, we suggest that the Statement is refreshed in line with the requirements of the Act so as to be enforceable from January 2025. Thereafter we will publish a revised GLA which you can include in a refreshed Statement. You are permitted to revise your Statement within the 3-year timescale.'
