Under the Gambling Act 2005, the City of Edinburgh Licensing Board is required to publish a Statement of Principles every three years, outlining the procedures it intends to follow in discharging its statutory responsibilities and functions under the Gambling Act 2005.
The existing policy is now in its third and final year; therefore, in accordance with the requirements of the Act, the Board has undertaken a review of the current policy and has prepared a draft Statement of Principles. The draft ‘Statement of Principles’ has now commenced a period of consultation which will expire on Friday 18 December 2009.
Anyone wishing to make representations or offer comment on the draft Statement of Principles should do so in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Upon completion of the consultation period, the Board will consider any representations which may have been made and will publish the finalized Statement of Principles.
