One of the requirements of the Gambling Act 2005 is for the council to produce a Statement of Gambling Policy setting out how gambling will be regulated in Bristol.

The Gambling Act requires local authorities to review their policy every three years.

The current policy came into force on 31 January 2016.

The Council are required to review and publish a new policy by 31 January 2019.

As part of the review process a draft policy is available for consultation from 15 June 2018 to 9 September 2018 and we would be interested in receiving your comments.

The main changes to the draft policy are to reflect some minor amendments to legislation, and introduce a local area profile for Bristol.
