Whanganui District Council has conducted its review of the Gambling Venues Policy. In addition to the decisions made, it is now proposing to prevent class 4 venues from relocating unless they are relocating to an area within the central business district.
The Council has undertaken its mandatory 3-yearly review of the Gambling Venues Policy. It elected to retain the 'sinking lid' policy, as well as making typographical changes to increase the clarity and consistency of the Policy.
Council is now also proposing to further restrict relocations of class 4 venues within the district. Currently, venues can only relocate if their current premises becomes effectively unusable. The proposed change would further restrict relocations, making them prohibited unless they are relocating to within the central business district.
