Part of Central Bedfordshire's statutory function is their role as the local Licensing Authority. The most obvious licensing issues are around alcohol and taxis but the requirement to be officially licensed also spills into areas such as sex shops or gambling.
The Gambling Act 2005 requires Licensing Authorities to review their gambling policy every three years; the Central Bedfordshire policy is due for renewal in January 2016. A consultation is currently open on this; there are some minor policy changes recommended to reflect current legislation.
