We are reviewing our Statement of Licensing Policy under

Section 5 of the Licensing Act 2003.


The Statement details the policy considerations to be applied in

response to licence applications for the sale and supply of alcohol,

the provision of regulated entertainment and the provision of

late night refreshment and will form the basis of licensing decisions

taken by the Council in its capacity as the ‘Licensing Authority’.

The changes to the policy are highlighted in red.


Please send us your comments in writing regarding the proposed
