Class 4 Gambling Policy
Under the Gambling Act 2003 the Council must have a Class 4 Gambling Policy.
The policy sets out our approach to gambling venues and restrictions on the number of pokie machines permitted.
At present the policy does not allow for an increase in the number of class 4 gaming venues or class 4 gaming machines, except under special circumstance.
TAB Venue Policy
The policy enables our community and the Council to influence the provision of new gambling in the District.
New TAB venues can be set up, subject to the District Plan, and meeting the following criteria:
- They are not located within 100 metres of any playground, kindergarten, early childhood centre, school or place of worship;
- The are not located within 100 metres of an automatic teller machine
- Operators supplying adequate evidence that measures will be in place to ensure that people under the age of 18 years cannot access gambling facilities
