Goals & Objectives of Casino Management
These authorities are each required to establish a Licensing Committee. The powers of the Act came fully into force at midnight at the start of 24 November Each local authority must set up a Licensing Committee with between ten and fifteen members. It is envisaged that most member level decisions will be made by a sub-committee of three. The Committee can and should have a scheme of delegation for different types of decision; this means that many applications will be decided by officers.
The full Committee is expected to receive monitoring reports. The Committee should make its decisions in accordance with the principles of natural justice and with regard to the Human Rights Act Articles 1, 6 and 8 of the European Convention on Human Rights are likely to be engaged. It has been suggested that councillors should not be involved in any way in decisions on premises in their ward, and the Standards Board for England has advised that only councillors who are members of the Committee should have any role in considering applications.
The Licensing Act sets out four licensing objectives of no preferential order which must be taken into account and adhered to at our premises, CAMEO Bournemouth. There are exceptions e. A premises licence is required for any premises offering licensable activities.
However, once a licence is granted it is valid until it is either surrendered or lapses in accordance with the Act, in contrast to the predecessor schemes which generally had to be renewed annually.
The application for a premises licence requires the completion of an operating schedule and the offering of conditions to be included on the premises licence and a plan of the premises.
A premises licence that includes the sale of alcohol must name an individual who holds a personal licence granted under the Act. This person is known as the designated premises supervisor DPS and must sign a consent form consenting to being named as that DPS. These bodies are all known as Responsible Authorities. Responsible Authorities are able to make representations to the licensing authority about an application.
The application must also be advertised by way of a blue notice displayed on or near to the premises for 28 days and in a local newspaper on one working day within ten working days of making the application.
In addition to the Responsible Authorities the Act now allows for any "other person" to make representations. If representation is made, the licensing authority must hold a hearing in most cases. After the hearing, the authority can make one of five decisions: An unsuccessful applicant can appeal to the Magistrates' Court ; unusually, an interested third party who disagrees with a decision to grant a licence can also appeal against the council's decision.
Any person or responsible authority can apply to the licensing authority for a review of an existing premises licence, with the aim of amending its conditions or revoking it entirely. Although not specifically referred to in the Act, Guidance, provides for the establishment of special areas of cumulative impact.
A research study in the London Borough of Southwark found no evidence that CIZ establishment reduced the number of successful applications nor impacted on the relative proportion of licence applications receiving objections.
A personal licence allows a person to sell alcohol, or authorise the sale of alcohol, under the authority of a premises license. Anyone can apply for a personal licence to the licensing authority for the area in which they live.
They need to show they have a licensing qualification and a criminal record clean of relevant offences. The local authority can only refuse such an application on police advice. The licence lasts indefinitely after changes to legislation where it was required to be renewed every 10 years. Anyone who already had a licence under the previous licensing schemes in their name - typically a pub landlord - was able to get a licence without having to have a qualification; this was known as the grandfather right.
If an applicant does not live within a local authority's area, they can apply to any authority of their choice. Any person over 18 can serve the local authority and local police with a temporary event notice TEN for an event which would normally need a premises licence, but which would be for a maximum period of hours, and would be for a maximum number of people.
Examples of events that could be covered by a TEN might be where a pub wants to stay open all weekend for a special occasion, but does not want to apply for, or cannot get, a licence allowing this all the time; or a beer tent in a summer fair. TENs also cover licensing over alcohol to clubs, entertainment or late night refreshment serving hot food between 11pm and 5am.
TENs must be submitted at least ten working days before an event is due to start; notice is given to the council responsible for the area to which the event is to be held.
A copy of this notice must be sent to the police that cover that area and to the Environmental Health department. The police and environmental health have 3 working days to make an objection. Anyone who does not have a personal licence can give only five notices a year, while a personal licence holder can give A TEN can only be given in respect of the same premises fifteen times in a calendar year.
On 25 April a late TEN was introduced. This can be submitted between five and nine working days before the event and should only be used when unforeseen circumstances lead to short notice. There is no need for permission for a temporary event; the prospective premises user merely has to formally notify the council and police that the event will take place. The aspect of casino management that differentiates it from other types of resort destinations is the gaming floor. Casino managers must make sure all the games are running as they should.
Even if it's not her direct job, the manager is ultimately responsible for the conduct of dealers, pit bosses and shift bosses. All of them have to know the game rules, the proper methods of paying out winners, and the ways in which players may attempt to cheat at specific games.
Investors in casino properties expect a specific rate of return on their money, and casino managers must take the necessary steps to ensure the site operates at its peak profit potential. For instance, the manager can work with the marketing department on promotions to increase floor traffic and gaming revenues, or advise the accounting department on ways to reduce operating costs. States and Native American tribes that allow casino gaming have strict regulations on how those facilities must operate.
These regulations can include setting the odds on different games, the hours the casino floor can be open and prohibitions against employing anyone with a criminal record. Casino managers must ensure every aspect of the floor operates within those regulations, or risk losing the site's gaming license.
