The Licensing Authority is required by Section 5 of the Act to determine and publish a Statement of Licensing Policy every five years and to have regard to it when determining applications made under the Act.
This policy will:
- Be used as a guide by members of the Licensing Authority in their decision making;
- Inform applicants about how applications will be considered;
- Inform applicants of the expectations the Licensing Authority will have of them;
- Inform residents and local businesses about how applications are considered and how they can engage in the Licensing process and be used to support decisions made by the Licensing Authority should its decisions be challenged.
This consultation is now closed.
