12. Occasional Use Notices
An Occasional Use Notice may be used to authorise betting on a track for up to eight days in any calendar year.
The definition of 'track' covers not just permanent racecourses and dog tracks but any land on which a race or other sporting event takes place. This includes, for example, agricultural land on which point-to-point meetings take place. The person giving the Notice must be responsible for the administration of the event or be the owner/occupier of the track.
Any person wishing to provide betting facilities on a track under an Occasional Use Notice must hold a Betting Operators Licence from the Gambling Commission.
There is no fee for an Occasional Use Notice.
