Clockfair Ltd v (1) Sandwell Metropolitan Borough Council and (2) Grosvenor Casinos Ltd [2012] EWHC 1857 (Admin) (2012)

Licensing - gambling - casinos - bingo - application for review - relevant matter - collateral challenge

The Gambling Act 2005 prohibited the issue of a premises licence where a premises licence converted from the previous regime (Gaming Act 1968) was already in effect in relation to those premises. The issue of a second licence was a matter which should have been taken into consideration by the licensing authority on application for review of the licences by the appellant.

Administrative Court

Lloyd Jones J

(1) The appellant (C) brought a statutory appeal against the decision of the first respondent (S) to take no action on C's application to have S review a casino premises licence held by the second respondent (G) and S's decision to vary the premises licence so as to relate to a different plot of land. G held both a casino and bingo licence for the premises. It operated a bingo hall at the premises and intended to operate a casino at the site specified in the variation. C had sought the review and revocation of the casino premises licence on the grounds that it had not been used since it had been granted and that the holding of concurrent licences was not prohibited under the Gambling Act 2005.
