Premises which require a premises licence include:

  • casinos
  • bingo halls
  • adult gaming centres
  • licensed family entertainment centres
  • betting permits for gaming machines in pubs and other alcohol licensed premises

Licensing Authorities will undertake inspections and enforce the conditions on these issued licenses, permits and notices.

The Gambling Commission shares with local Licensing Authorities the responsibility for granting gaming and betting permissions.  You will need to contact them for information on operating and personal licence requirements. 

We offer a pre-application and application advice service to support your licensing application.  The aim is to help you to mitigate any problems which may arise during the application process. For further details please fill in the Pre-Application Advice Request Form.
