|What Do You Think of Betting Shops?|
Have your say in a new consultation
The council has launched the consultation in response to recent concerns raised by residents about the impact of betting shops on their local community. In order to understand the nature and extent of these concerns the council is inviting local people to get involved and share their comments and suggestions.
Following the consultation, the council will consider whether to make any changes to the existing gambling policy.
Councillor Ranjit Dheer, cabinet member for Safer Communities said “It is vitally important for local people to tell us what they think. By gaining a better understanding of the way residents feel about gambling premises in their communities, we can then consider the most appropriate way to respond. I urge all local people to go online and have their say.”
