Local risk assessments

From 6 April 2016, it is a requirement of the Gambling Commission’s Licence Conditions and Codes of Practice (LCCP), under Section 10, for licensees to assess the local risks to the licensing objectives posed by the provision of gambling facilities at their premises and have policies, procedures and control measures to mitigate those risks. In making risk assessments, licensees must take into account relevant matters identified in the gambling policy.

We have updated our gambling policy to include guidance on producing a risk assessment and using the local area profile, including what we would expect as a minimum.

You can download the Local Area Profile (DOCX 486KB) (LAP) from the BHconnected website. The LAP is evidence based and maps local risks to the area.
