The Gambling Act 2005 requires Licensing Boards to review and publish a Statement of their Gambling Principles every 3 years. The Statement of Principles provides guidance for the Board, applicants and anyone with an interest in gambling in relation to how licensed gambling activity is regulated in the Board's area.

All responses to this consultation will be considered at a meeting of Scottish Borders Licensing Board before approval of a new Statement of Gambling Principles.

Once approved, the new Statement of Principles will be published on the Council's website.
