The Board Venue Policy specifies whether or not new TAB Board Venues may be established in the District and where they may be located. It allows for a maximum of two Board Venues in our District.
The policy only applies to stand-alone TAB Board Venues, which are operated by the New Zealand Racing Board. It does not apply to pubs or clubs who provide TAB gambling opportunities.
Three-yearly review of this policy is required by the Racing Act 2003. At its meeting on 22 July 2021, Council reviewed this policy and resolved to retain it with no changes.
