Gambling Act 2005 - Small Casino Licence

To consider licence conditions for Casino 36


Naomi Gilchrist reminded the Committee that the last meeting had been adjourned in order to consider whether or not it was necessary to attach conditions to the Small Casino Licence for Casino 36, to ensure that the premises did not operate before being fully compliant with the plans submitted to the local authority.  She further advised that meetings had been held with the applicant who was aware that the committee would be advised that he would be advised that he would have to be able to comply with the mandatory conditions, which would be attached upon issue of the licence, before he could lawfully operate under the 2005 Act licence.  The 2005 Act licence could not be issued until the current 1968 licence had been varied to move it form the current premises.  Upon granting such a variation, the legislation requires the Licensing Committee to state a time (or stage) at which the variation should take effect.  Accordingly, operation under that licence could be further considered at that stage.  In such circumstances, it was necessary to add such a condition to the 2005 Act licence.


The Committee agreed to course of action as outlined above by the Legal Advisor.
