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 will be 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 and therefore licensing authorities have no discretion in this matter.
