Each year Gateshead Council is required to review the Council Tax Support Scheme which helps people on low incomes pay their Council Tax. The scheme needs to reflect the needs of our community and make it as fair as possible with the funding we have available. We are inviting all residents, (whether they claim Council Tax Support or not), as well as local organisations and groups to give us their views on the proposed changes.
SURVEY You can complete our survey by clicking on the Take Part button above.
DISCUSSION GROUPS You can also come along to one of our discussion groups where we'll have officers on hand to talk you through the scheme and the effect of the proposed changes. There are two events being held at Gateshead Civic Centre on:
Thursday 22nd October at 2pm Tuesday 27th October at 6pm

All licensing authorities are required to prepare and publish a statement of the policy that they propose to apply in exercising their functions under the Licensing Act 2003 (the ‘Act’) every five years. Gateshead Council’s current Licensing Policy has effect between 7 January 2011 and 6 January 2016 and we are in the process of drafting a new policy for 2016 to 2021.
The draft document (available to download below) sets out the policy that Gateshead Licensing Authority will apply when making decisions about the sale and supply of alcohol, the provision of regulated entertainment and the provision of late night refreshment and both applicants and licence holders are expected to have regard to it.
The policy is relevant to a wide range of individuals, businesses and residents and we welcome all views.
You can download the draft Licensing Policy for 2016-2021 from the box below.

Licensing authorities are required to prepare and publish, every three years, a Statement of the Principles that they propose to apply when exercising their functions under the Gambling Act 2005.
Gateshead Council’s current Statement of Principles has effect between 18 January 2013 and 17 January 2016 and we are in the process of drafting a new statement for 2016 to 2019.
The draft document sets out the policy that Gateshead Licensing Authority will apply when making decisions about gambling in the borough and both applicants and those that currently hold authorisations under the Gambling Act 2015 are expected to have regard to it.
The Statement of Principles is relevant to all those involved directly with the gambling industry as well as interested parties including, local partnership groups, residents’ associations, faith groups and youth organisations. Although the draft document is aimed mainly at the industry, including those that operate arcades, betting shops, bingo halls pubs and clubs, it is also really important that the final Statement accurately reflects the views of all those who have an involvement with, or interest in, gambling in Gateshead.
If you wish to comment on some, or all, of the draft Statement then your contribution would be most appreciated.
