Licence and permit applications
Gambling - premises licence
An application for a premises licence may be made by persons who are over 18 years of age and by companies or partnerships, having a right to occupy the particular premises. Vessels such as pleasure boats qualify as premises for this purpose but vehicles, such as trains and aircraft, do not.
The applicant must already hold, or have applied for, an operating licence from the Gambling Commission authorising the type of gambling proposed.
Only one premises licence may be issued for any particular premises at one time, although the licence may authorise more than one type of gambling. Tracks such as horse and dog racing tracks are the exception to this rule; they may have more than one premises licence.
Further information and guidance
Further information can be obtained from the Gambling Commission website and also from the Department of Culture, Media and Sports (DCMS) website.
