The Council is inviting comments on its Gambling Policy

Find out more about the proposed amendments to the Gambling Policy


The Council is inviting comments on its Gambling Policy. These amendments include the introduction of measures designed to protect the public, safeguard children and vulnerable passengers, and keep drivers safe.  The most significant changes to the proposed revised Gambling Licensing Policy are the requirement for applicants to carry out a risk assessment, and the development of a Local Area Profile (LAP) which maps risk factors across the borough and will help to identify areas that would not be suitable for new gambling premises.  
Any comments, observations or representations can be e-mailed to  or made in writing to the Licensing Manager, Environment, 33 Sheepen Road, Colchester CO3 3WG.  The closing date for representations is 5 November 2018.
