Licensed Premises Gaming Machine Permit

A premises authorised for the sale of alcohol under a premises licence (issued under the Licensing Act 2003) may apply for a Gaming Machine Permit. The licensing authority may issue a Gaming Machine Permit for any number of category C or D machines on licensed premises.

Where a permit authorises the making available of a specified number of gaming machines in particular premises, this will effectively replace, and not be in addition to any automatic entitlement to two machines under section 282 of the Gambling Act 2005.

Holders of alcohol-licensed premises Gaming Machine Permits will be required to comply with the Gambling Commission’s code of practice with regards to the location and operation of machines.

The licensing authority is required to maintain a register of permits together with other information as may be specified in regulations. They must make arrangements so that the register is available to the public and also to allow for a copy of any entry or information contained in the register to be provided to members of the public on request. A copy of the Council's public register is available by appointment at the City Offices, weekdays 08:30 to 17:00.

For more information on the categories of gaming machines, please refer to the Gambling Commission for the most up-to-date specifications.
