About gambling licences

We’re responsible for licensing premises in the Vale of White Horse where gambling takes place.

To find out more about the various authorisations please see:

When deciding whether to issue a gambling licence or permit, we follow guidance from the Gambling Commission, our Gambling Principles and the three licensing objectives from the Gambling Act 2005:

  • keeping gambling crime free
  • making sure that gambling is fair and open
  • protecting children and vulnerable adults

The Gambling Commission issues operating and personal licences, as well as those for regulating gambling via the internet, phone, TV, or computer. More information can be found on the Gambling Commission website.

Please see our fees and charges page for the current cost of each licence or permit.
