Statement of Licensing Policy 2021

View and have your say on our Statement of Licensing Policy 2021

About the Statement of Licensing Policy

The Licensing Act 2003 requires all local authorities to publish a Statement of Licensing Policy each five-year period. Our current policy was approved by Full Council on the 26 November 2015. Regulations require that we review that policy and have the new policy in place by the 7 January 2021

The policy will be the basis for all licensing decisions we take over the next five years. You can view our current policy on our policy information page, and the proposed policy below:

Proposed licensing policy under consultation

Have your say

We ran a consultation to allow for your comments on our proposals. Our consultation closed on 12 October 2020.

Any comments received will form a report to Cabinet. Once the policy has been agreed, it will replace the current policy on the our policy information page.
