Gambling Act 2005

The licensing authority has regulatory obligations under the Gambling Act 2005 for licensing gambling premises and issuing club machine permits, gaming machine permits, temporary use notices and registering small society lotteries.

(a) preventing gambling from being a source of crime and disorder, being associated with crime and disorder or being used to support crime,

(b) ensuring that gambling is conducted in a fair and open way, and

(c) protecting children and other vulnerable persons from being harmed or exploited by gambling.
