Every three years the council is required to publish a Statement of Licensing Principles for Gambling, or Gambling Policy, that sets out how it will regulate gambling premises in the borough.

Our existing statement of principles (2013-2016) expired on 30 January 2016 and is now due for review and renewal.

The statement will be revised in two stages. This consultation concerns the first stage.

It is proposed to make no fundamental changes to the existing statement and simply readopt the current statement of principles with some small revisions, subject to any feedback from this consultation.

Summary of proposed changes

Paragraph Section title Details of changes
- Front cover Updated contact details for Licensing
- About Lambeth Updated statistics and commentary
- About this document Updated dates and version number
- General Principles Delete reference to Lambeth Corporate Plan 2011-14
1.21 Enforcement Inclusion of the Regulators Code (issued by the Better Regulation Delivery Office of the Department for Business Innovation and Skills) within enforcement principles
- Appendix C – Contact Details Updated to reflect current contact details for Licensing and responsible authorities

The readopted statement will take effect from 20 June 2016. The second stage of the revision will commence later in the year to take into account significant recent changes to statutory guidance that will affect local gambling policy. There will be a second consultation exercise and a revised statement is likely to be adopted in spring 2017.

We would like to hear from you if you have any views on gambling policy in Lambeth, including whether you are in favour of the “no casino” policy in Lambeth.
