Ribble Valley Borough Council

Gambling Act 2005

The Council's Statement of Principles

The Gambling Act 2005 requires that every local authority publish a Statement of Principles that it applies when exercising its functions under the Act.  The Act also requires that the local authority review the policy at least every 3 years.

At the Licensing Committee on 27 November 2012, Members considered the Statement of Principles and approved the document.  Prior to the revised statement being adopted, the Council also undertook a consultation exercise which took place between 3 December 2012 and 31 January 2013. 

The Statement was subsequently approved at the full Council meeting on 23 April 2013.
