Temporary and occasional use notices

Temporary use notices


A gambling operator may use a premise temporarily for gambling, where no licence is in force.  These include hotels, exhibition centres, conference centres and sporting venues.


The notice allows gambling to take place at the premises for up to 21 days during any 12 month period.


The notice must be lodged with the licensing authority not less than 3 months and 1 day before the day on which the gambling event will begin and must be copied to: 


  • the Gambling Commission
  • the Police
  • HM Commissioners for Revenue and Customs; and, if applicable
  • any other licensing authority in whose area the premises are situated

Occasional use notices


An occasional use notice can be used if betting is to take place for 8 days or less in a calendar year on the ‘track’ and there is no track betting licence in place.


The venue occupier or events administrator should give notice to the council’s licensing authority and to the police.  No objection may be raised and there is no time restriction on when the notice must be given – it could be given on the day of the event.
