Bookies in Jersey will be able to open on Sundays from January next year.
The law that used to stop bookmakers opening shops on a Sunday is being relaxed, but it will be different in each Parish.
If the Parish constable gives the shop owners permission, the gambling stores can open.
Like any other shop, the constable will have to bear in mind if, by opening, it will cause a nuisance:
By the opening hours...
The size of the shop..
And any additional noise and traffic.
Most betting shops in the island are under 700 sq metres, so could reasonably apply.
