The Licensing Act 2003 requires each licensing authority to produce and publish a policy regarding how it will carry out its functions under the Act.
We act as the licensing authority for the district.
Our Licensing Policy explains how the Council, acting as the Licensing Authority, intends to promote the Licensing Objectives in the district.
We must act in a way that promotes the Licensing Objectives.
These objectives are:
It is important to be aware that the licensing policy only becomes relevant to the consideration of an application if the Licensing Authority receives representations from objectors or responsible authorities.
Where no representations are received, applications are only subject to the provisions of the Act and statutory guidance, and have to be granted in the terms sought by the applicant, with the imposition of relevant mandatory conditions and conditions set out in the operating schedule.
The Statement of Licensing Policy was adopted by Council on 23rd November 2013 with effect from 7th January 2014. This policy has now been reviewed and re-published on 7th January 2014.
The policy will be reviewed again in five years.
