    If option B is selected will the numbers of machines continue to reduce over time or would Option A have to be selected for this to happen.

    Thank you for your question 

    The number of machines and venues has reduced over time since the introduction of the Council's Gambling Venues policy. Option A would mean that once machines or venues are removed, they cannot be replaced. Under Option B any machines and venues that were removed could be replaced as long as there was room under the caps .
