Licensing consultation

Licensing news is a weekly guide to all licence applications received, granted and refused.

Our licensing register allows you to comment on pending applications, track applications, save searches and receive updates on searches if a new application is received or an existing application’s status is updated. You can also view licences and the details of activities permitted and any conditions.

We accept comments, representation or objections from interested parties that are sent online or made by email or in writing.

Open consultations

Gambling consultation

Westminster City Council is responsible for licensing gambling under the Gambling Act 2005. Every three years we must publish a statement of principles showing how we will regulate gambling under the Act. We propose to readopt our current statement in January 2019 – and invite comments on this proposal.

This is just the first stage in the council’s gambling consultation. We are committed to reviewing our future approach to gambling, and engaging fully with local residents, businesses, gambling operators, responsible authorities and other stakeholders. This wider consultation will begin in October 2018.

Consultation on the proposal to readopt the current Statement runs from Tuesday 28 August until Monday 8 October 2018. For more details and how to respond see the documents below.
