Permits

Local authorities already issue a number of permits or registrations for activities under existing gambling legislation. Under the Gambling Act 2005, the Licensing Authority is responsible for dealing with the following permits and registrations: 

  • Unlicensed family entertainment centre gaming machine permits;
  • Registration of small lottery licences;
  • Club gaming permits;
  • Club gaming machine permits;
  • Licensed premises gaming machine permits;
  • Prize gaming permits.

Unlike premises licence fees, permit fees are prescribed by the government. Therefore, licensing authorities have no discretion in this matter.
