Gambling safeguarding guidance for premises

The process

All applications will come to the Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council Children's Services post or via e-mail.

Applications will be vetted for safeguarding issues and to ensure that adequate consideration has been given to the protection of children from harm, which is one of the licensing objectives.

Where insufficient information is provided the applicant will be contacted.  

Where there are concerns or a lack of suitable conditions on the application a representation will be sent to the Council's Licensing Service. A committee hearing will then be arranged to discuss this and any other representations received. In all cases, applications will be logged on a database.
