Westminster City Council Review of Gambling Policy

Westminster City Council is currently consulting on its statutory review of its Gambling Policy. Under s349 Gambling Act 2005, the Council must publish a ‘Statement of Principles’, and review it every 3 years. The current policy runs from January 2010 to January 2013. The Council has indentified 4 issues relating to betting shops which they wish to address in the review of the policy:

a. The concentration (or density) of betting shops in an area

b. The extension of opening hours for betting shops

c. The association with crime and disorder in the vicinity of betting shops

d. The primary use of betting shops and provision of gaming machines

The consultation document can be viewed at the following link: on the review of Westminster Gambling Policy web.pdf
