The Gambling Act 2005 requires East Dunbartonshire Licensing Board to prepare a Statement of Principles for Gambling that it proposes to apply, which needs to be reviewed every three years.

The Board is working with the Gambling Commission, Police Scotland, representatives for businesses and the wider general public to gather views on a revised draft Statement.

You can access further information and have a say until 10 January 2022

I would encourage anyone with an interest in this area to visit the website and provide feedback to help inform the updated guidance."
