A consultation has commenced on the revised statement of Licensing Policy and we would welcome your views and feedback.
The Licensing Act 2003 (Section 5) requires every Licensing Authority to prepare and publish a statement of its licensing policy every 5 years. The new revised version for 2020-2025 aims to set out a clear set of principles that the Licensing Authority will uphold and promote in everything it does in administering the licensing regime in the borough.
The ultimate aim of this policy is to promote the four licensing objectives as set out in the Licensing Act 2003:
- Prevention of Crime and Disorder
- Prevention of Public Nuisance
- Protection of Children from Harm
- Public Safety
In outlining clear principles and best practice for promoting licensing objectives, this policy aims to provide a robust platform for the licensing authority to deliver responsible licensed premises that enhance and add value to the areas within which they are located.

Feedback can be given by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The consultation is open for 6 weeks and will close on Sunday 22nd March 2020.
