Additional documents:


The Licensing and Local Land Charges Manager introduced the Review of Gambling Policy report, and read all of the points in the report to Members.


Members raised the following points:


·         There were many recommendations in the consultation response from Gamcare; however it would be difficult for West Lindsey District Council (WLDC) to act as a policeman for problem gambling.  Only responsible gambling outlets can be licensed;


·         Out of the neighbouring and local councils, East Lindsey received four responses to their gambling consultation, West Lindsey received three, and North Kesteven received no responses;


·         There were six gambling premises in West Lindsey;


Members stated that they had the highest regard for the work of the Licensing and Local Land Charges Manager and his team.


RESOLVED to approve the amended draft policy and recommend to Council for formal adoption as The Gambling Policy (Statement of Principles) at the Council meeting of 12 November 2018;
