Gambling Policy

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 policies.

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 17 May 2018 with the latest review completed on 10 December 2020 confirming that the Policy would remain with no changes.
