Every year we carry out a wide range of consultation about the services that we provide. We seek the views of local residents, businesses, visitors, the voluntary and community sector, and other partners to help us to provide better services and to improve the quality of life in Bolton.

Gambling Act 2005 – Review of Statement of Principles

Bolton Council shares responsibility for enforcement of the Gambling Act with the Gambling Commission.

Section 349 of the Gambling Act 2005 requires licensing authorities to publish a statement of the principles that they propose to apply in exercising their functions under the act. We now invite responsible authorities, residents, businesses and representatives of existing license holders to make comments as part of the required consultation exercise.

Please read the proposed statement of principles (changes are highlighted within the document) and also the summary of the changes. If you’d prefer a paper copy of the document please ring 01204 336584.

We would welcome your views on the statement by midnight on Friday 22nd February. You can submit your comments by email to consultation@bolton.gov.uk or in writing using our freepost address (you do not need a stamp).
