Gambling Act 2005 fees and charges
Here are Uttlesford District Council's Gambling Act 2005 fees and charges.
Non fast-track transitional
This is a one-off, non-refundable fee payable to the licensing authority upon application for a new gambling premises licence or one under the transitional arrangements for existing operators. The fee will cover the cost to the licensing authority of receiving, considering and determining the application, including staff costs, overheads, IT, legal and other central support costs, initial inspections, Licensing Committee costs and hearing costs and appeals.
Under the Transitional Arrangements separate fees will be payable for:
Fast-track transitional licence applications, which are made by an existing licence holder who accepts all the default conditions that will attach to the licence;
Slow-track transitional licence applications, which are made by an existing licence holder who seeks to vary the default conditions that would otherwise attach to the licence.
Payable annually by all premises licence holders for the maintenance of their licence. This will cover the regulatory costs for the next year (i.e. inspection, holding reviews and enforcement activity), the costs associated with processing the annual fee (i.e. updating computer systems, register of gambling premises licences and processing fee) and annualised periodic costs incurred by the licensing authority in respect of its 3 year
Under the Act, subsequent annual fees are payable before each anniversary of the date on which the licence is issued. Under the Act, a licensing authority must revoke a premises licence if a licensee fails to pay the annual fee, except where the authority thinks the failure to pay is due to an administrative error.
