Gambling premises information

We are currently experiencing a large number of telephone calls into the service with queries.

If you need to contact us, at the moment we would appreciate an email setting out your enquiry. For general licensing matters, the email address is licensing@derby.gov.uk.

If you still feel you need to leave a telephone answer message, please note that we will prioritise your call and may not be able to respond to you if your enquiry could be resolved by visiting the website.

To comply with the Gambling Act 2005, you must have a premises licence and a permit or registration to hold gambling.

We issue premises licences for:

Gambling premises licence

An operator may only apply to us for the grant of a premises licence once they have been granted an operators licence by the Gambling Commission.

Generally only one premises licence may be in force at any one time. This is to limit the principal activity to a particular type of gambling. The exception to this is pool betting (tracks betting) where a premises licence for the track may be in force at the same time as one for a licensed betting office situated on the track premises.

We must aim to permit gambling provided that it is operated to comply with the codes of practice and guidance issued by the Gambling Commission and consistent with the three licensing objectives and our Statement of Principles.

The Public Register

The Public Register contains information about existing applications, notices and licences. Please contact the Licensing Team for any requests about the Public Register.

Statement of Principles

We are required to draft, consult on and publish a Statement of Principles which sets out the policies and principles that we will apply when carrying out our licensing functions under the Act. The current Statement of Principles came into effect in February 2016 and these are valid until February 2019.

The Licensing Team is committed to protecting and respecting your privacy when you use our services.  Please view Licensing Team Privacy Notices for further information.  Printed copies are available on request.
