THE public is being given the chance to have its say on how gambling should be managed in Hertsmere.

With the controversial Potters Bar gaming centre in Darkes Lane nearing completion, Hertsmere Borough Council has issued a timely reminder to residents to make their feelings clear as it draws up a new gambling policy for next year.

The current policy came into effect in September 2007, and needs to be renewed every three years.

The council is now entering into a consultation period with residents in order to update the policy.

Principal licensing officer Phil Andrews said: "We have to review the policy every three years to ensure it is still valid, current and applicable to both our needs and those affected.

"Premises that hold any form of bingo, betting shop, amusements with prizes, gaming machines permit or a small society lottery are affected by the gambling policy.
