CONSULTATION ON THE REVIEW OF THE STATEMENT OF LICENSING POLICY – LICENSING ACT 2003

The Council is required to undertake a consultation exercise to review the adopted Statement of Licensing policy in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003. The Council adopted the current statement of Licensing Policy on 14 October 2015.  The Licensing Policy lasts for a 5 year period (amended from 3 years to 5 years by the Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011) and must be readopted by the Council for successive 5 year periods. 

A licensing statement cannot be re-adopted before the completion of a consultation exercise. 

The public may contribute to the consultation exercise and the Review of Statement of Licensing Policy 2021 – 2026 Document is attached.

In addition, the Council must consult with a statutory list of persons who are directly concerned or affected with the licensing system.

Please let me have any comments in writing before 10 August 2020
