Background

Under the Gambling Act 2003 and the Racing Industry Act 2020, every council is required to develop a class 4 Gambling Venues Policy and a TAB Venues Policy. In developing these policies, NPDC must have regard to the social impact of gambling within the district.

Councils may also consider the following when developing these policies:

  • The characteristics of the district and parts of the district.
  • The location of kindergartens, early childhood centres, schools, places of worship and other community facilities.
  • The cumulative effects of additional opportunities for gambling in the district.

In addition, Council may consider the following when developing a class 4 gambling venues policy:

  • The number of gaming machines that should be permitted to operate at any venue or class of venue
  • How close any venue should be permitted to be to any other venue
  • What the primary activity at any venue should be.

These policies must be reviewed every three years.
