Gambling Premises Licences

An application for a Premises Licence can only be made by persons (including companies or partnerships) who have the right to occupy the premises and have an operating licence (from the Gambling Commission), which allows them to carry out the proposed activity.

When applying for a Premises Licence, applicants will have to submit:

  • An application form which will need to be submitted to the responsible authorities.
  • A plan of the building.
  • The fee, which can be found on our Gambling Act Fees page.

The Council may impose conditions that promote the licensing objectives.

To apply for a licence please visit the Gambling Commission’s Licensing Authority forms (external link) page to download the correct application form and return it to us at the address below.

You will need to make your payment separately as cheques are not accepted. You can make your payment online by visiting our Make a Payment page and selecting Lotteries and Gambling Licence from the drop down. The reference number will prefill for you but you will need to enter the amount. Please write your receipt number on your application form.

For details of the authorities to whom copies of your application should also be served, please see our Responsible Authorities for gambling
