Temporary use notices
A Temporary Use Notice (TUN) will allow use of premises for gambling where there is no premises licence, but where a gambling operator wants to use the premises temporarily for providing facilities for gambling.
Premises that might be suitable for a TUN include hotels, conference centres, and sporting venues.
A Temporary Use Notice may only be granted to a person or company holding a relevant operating licence issued by the Gambling Commission. The same premises may not be the subject of a Temporary Use Notice for more than 21 days in any 12-month period, but may be the subject of several notices, provided that the total does not exceed 21 days.
Should the maximum period be exceeded, we will issue a counter notice that has the effect of stopping the Temporary Use Notice coming into effect. Failure to comply with a counter notice is a criminal offence.
