In this section
Consultation on Revised Statement of Principles Under the Gambling Act 2005

Wychavon District Council is a licensing authority under the Gambling Act 2005.

As such the Council is required to review, consult upon, and re-publish a statement of the principles that it proposes to apply when exercising its functions under the Act at least every three years. 

The Council’s next statement of principles must be published before 31st January 2025.

The Council has therefore undertaken a review of its statement of principles and does not propose to make any substantive changes to it before it is re-published.  Only very minor changes are being proposed including:

  • Updating the dates shown on the front page and in other parts of the Statement to reflect that this Statement of Principles will cover the period between January 2025 and January 2028.
  • Updating the population figure given in the introduction to reflect the latest census figures.
  • Updating the list of consultees at Appendix B of the statement of principles to include additional gambling and other relevant trade associations.

The Council is now inviting comments on the draft revised statement of principles, which can be downloaded :   pdf Revised Statement of Principles (850 KB)

Any comments on the draft revised statement of principles can be emailed to the Council via This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and using the subject line “Wychavon Gambling Statement Review.”
