Gambling Act 2005
‘The Project recently acted for various interested parties who were objecting to a number of applications made by William Hill and Coral under s169 Gambling Act 2005 to remove the default hours condition attached to premises licences for betting shops, so as to extend the opening hours from 10pm to midnight Mon-Sun. The interested parties were the only objectors, there being no representations from the licensing authority or any of the statutory bodies. The Council refused all the applications.
If you are a resident of Westminster and you are concerned about a betting shop application in your area, feel free to contact us for advice.
