Temporary use notices (TUN)

A TUN allows:

  • the use of a premises for gambling when that premises does not have a premises licence
  • an operator to use a premises temporarily for gambling

The notice can only be granted to a person or a company who holds a relevant operator licence form the Gambling Commission.

A TUN can only be used for up to 21 days in a calendar year. The notice must be given to the licensing authority not less than 3 months and one day before the day on which the gambling event will begin or it will not be considered.

You must also send a copy of the notice within 7 days to The Gambling Commission, HM Revenue & Customs and Hackney Police. Please see:

Occasional use notices (OUN)

OUNs are intended to allow the holders of operating licences to provide betting facilities at tracks for short periods, without the need for a betting premises licence, where the event on which the betting is taking place is of a temporary nature and is infrequent. OUNs can only be used for 8 days or less in a calendar year.

A notice must be sent to The Gambling Commission, HM Revenue & Customs and Hackney Police. Please see:
