Licensing Act 2003 - Statement of Licensing Policy

Licensing Act 2003 - Statement of Licensing Policy

Current Policy 2020 – 2024

The Licensing Act 2003 requires licensing authorities to prepare and publish a statement of its licensing policy every five years.

The policy is a statement of the principles that it proposes to apply when exercising its functions under the Licensing Act 2003.

The policy must be kept under review and the licensing authority must make such revisions as it considers appropriate.

As a result of a number of legislative changes the Authority has completed a review of the Statement of Licensing Policy and the updated document was passed by Full Council on 13 January 2020.

The new policy takes effect on 14 January 2020.

The current policy expires at the end of 2024.
