Gambling Venue Policy Review

Current Consultations

Gambling Venue Policy Review

Consultations have now closed.

Timaru District Council has opened consultations on the Gambling Venue Policy. We want to receive your thoughts on the draft policy, by 5pm Friday 11 November.

Council is proposing to rollover the existing policy without amendment. This is because the current policy appears to be striking an appropriate balance between minimising problem gambling harm while enabling the legitimate participation in gambling.

Further information can be found below.

The Statement of Proposal outlines the proposed policy and our rationale for suggesting it. It also includes an assessment of alternative policy options.

The Social Impact Assessment outlines the social impact of Class 4 Gambling in the Timaru District. It was prepared by an independent agency.

Contact gambling@timdc.govt.nz with any questions about the content of the policy, or submissions@timdc.govt.nz with any questions about the submissions process.
