Under the Gambling Act 2005 ("the Act") Permits are issued to premises that either offer very low-stakes and prize gaming, or premises whose primary function is not the provision of gambling facilities.
We issue the following types of Permit under the Act:
There are several key differences between a Permit and a Premises Licence:
Permit applicants/holders are not required to have an Operating Licence issued by the Gambling Commission
There are no interested parties in relation to Permit applications
The Licensing Authority can only grant or reject Permits, we can not attach conditions.
With the exception of permits relating to alcohol licensed premises, Permits are of limited duration.
