The subject of the decision:
This report sought approval of the Council’s Gambling Act 2005 Statement of Principles.

A copy of the representation and response were appended to the report.
Alternative options considered:
The Committee considered the Director’s report and having concluded that the proposed amendments were appropriate no further modifications were deemed appropriate.
The reason for the decision:
