Under the Gambling Act 2003 and the Racing Act 2003, Council
must have both a Class 4 Gambling Venue Policy and a Board Venue Policy. These
Acts set out factors that Council must take into consideration when developing
The Council's Gambling Policy provides guidance for both class 4
gambling venues (venues that have pokie machines) and stand-alone board venues
(TABs) on the Council's approach to pokie machines and TABs in the district.
The Council adopted its Policy on Thursday 14 December 2023.
