The Authority is seeking views on the revisions to the Statement of Licensing Policy that will need to be adopted by January 2024.
There are no fundamental changes to this policy, and it remains that there is no evidence to support implementing either a cumulative impact policy or early morning restriction orders.

Removal of reference to amusement with prizes as this sits within the Council’s Gambling Act Policy Statement
Removal of annexe relating to the Enforcement Policy (and replaced with a hyperlink)
Removal of the annexe relating to Sexual Entertainment Venues (SEV), as this sits within the Council’s SEV policy.

Updating the live music exemptions (page 5)
Revision of the cumulative impact statement (page 8-9)
Temporary Event Notices (page 16-17)
Additions to Policy:
