Occasional Use Notices

Where there is betting on a track for eight or less days in a calendar year, betting may be permitted by an Occasional Use Notice without the need for a full Premises Licence.

A track means:

  • a horse racecourse
  • a dog track
  • any other premises or any part of a premises on which a race or other sporting event takes or is intended to take place

The track does not have to be a permanent fixture and can be used for other purposes when not being utilised as a track.

No gaming machines may be provided under the provisions of an Occasional Use Notice.
