Councillors endorse new gambling principles

A statement of principles for gambling activities has been endorsed by the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead to start from January 1.

Councillors on the full council unanimously agreed to the move at a full council meeting at Windsor Guildhall two weeks ago.

Every licensing authority must publish a statement of principles every three years, which is required under the Gambling Act 2005.

The policy is penned to ensure the objectives of the act are met so gambling authorised by the council does not have any adverse affects on borough residents.

There are 24 bookmakers, two racetracks and two adult entertainment centres situated across the Royal Borough.

Cllr Andrew Jenner (Con, Maidenhead Riverside) chairman of the licensing panel. said the wording mirrors the same document as before, which started in January 2010.
