Statement of Licensing Policy

The law requires us to publish a statement of licensing policy describing how we will carry out our licensing functions in relation to alcohol, entertainment and late night refreshment.

The policy is written in accordance with licensing law and guidance issued by the Government and is reviewed at least every five years.

The policy helps officers and councillors to make decisions on particular applications by setting out the things that will normally be taken into account when deciding whether to grant an application and what conditions should be attached to any particular licence or certificate.

The policy also tries to make things clear to applicants and residents in order to help them to understand the objectives being promoted and the matters that will be considered when deciding whether to grant licences.
