Consultations - Gambling Act 2005


Below is a list of the applications under the Gambling Act 2005 that are outstanding and other gambling licensing policy documents that Adur District or Worthing Borough Councils are currently consulting on or awaiting hearings.

All the applications and policy documents can be viewed in full at the Licensing Unit. All licensing hearings are held, in public, at the Adur Civic Centre or Worthing Town Hall, whichever is the appropriate authority, unless otherwise noted.

For new premises licence applications, and variation applications to existing licences, that receive relevant representations from 'Responsible Authorities' and/or an interested party, and mediation is unsuccessful or impractical, a hearing is required.

For a review of a premises licence a hearing must be held.

All relevant representations received could become public documents and could be published in their entirety in any report that accompanies ;an application or policy consultation.

Gambling Act 2005: Policy Review Consultation

The Gambling Commission is responsible for the majority of the administration and enforcement of the act but a number of responsibilities have been placed on local licensing authorities.

Under the act the Licensing Authority, Worthing Borough Council, is obliged to publish its policy with respect to the exercise of its licensing functions and re-examine that policy at least every three years. The council's current policy has just completed consultation as part of that review process.

The council would like to thank those that have taken the time to read the policy and respond. The policy and results of consultation were presented to the Licensing & Control Committee on Monday 2 October 2017 for members to consider. The draft was recommended and went to full council for consideration and adoption on 31 October 2017.
