Apply for provisional statement for gambling premises licence
You can apply to us for a provisional statement in respect of a premises that you:
- expect to be constructed
- expect to be altered
- expect to acquire a right to occupy
This refers to premises that would require a gambling premises licence, such as casinos, bingo, betting, adult gaming machines and family entertainment centres.
This may appeal to developers who want to know whether a potential development needs a premises licence, before they enter into a contract to buy or lease property or land.
It is also possible for an application for a provisional statement to be made for premises that already have a premises licence (either for a different type of gambling or the same type).
You will also need to:
- pay the appropriate licensing fee
- read the guidance notes of applying for a provisional statement (pdf 207KB)
