Licensing Policy

The Council, as "Licensing Authority", is required to produce a Statement of Licensing Policy. This important document sets out the guiding principles by which the Licensing Authority will make its decisions. The document can be reviewed at any time, however the Licensing Authority must formally review the document every 3 years. It is therefore important that all applicants and existing licence holders are aware of the contents of the Policy when making applications.

The current Policy Statement (Adobe PDF format, 364kb) is the third revision of this document and was subject to a 12 week public consultation exercise involving all parties in the licensing process. The Policy Statement was agreed at Full Council on the 15 December 2010, published on the 7 January 2011, and came into force on the 7 February 2011.
