Licensing Act Consultation

Closed 12 Aug 2018

Opened 21 May 2018


Under the Act, a Licensing Authority is required to prepare and publish a Statement of Licensing Policy.

This consultation is relevant to all Responsible Authorities under the Licensing Act 2003 and to existing licence holders and other bodies subject to regulation under the Licensing Act 2003. The consultation is also of interest to resident representative bodies and trade associations.

We are keen to gather all views on the subject of the Statement of Licensing Policy and any supporting evidence. You should not feel constrained by the specific questions nor feel obliged to offer responses to all of them. Concentrate on those in which you have the most interest.

The draft policy has been devised following an evaluation of the effectiveness of the existing policy.

The consultation will close on 12 August 2018.

All consultee responses will then be analysed with a final draft being submitted to Licensing Committee for comment and recommendation for approval at full Council in February 2019.
