Statement of Licensing Policy 2022-2027 consultation

We are consulting on a revised statement of licensing policy to set out how we will carry out our duties as required under the Licensing Act 2003.

Under Section 5 of the Licensing Act 2003 the licensing authority is required to prepare a statement of principles that they propose to apply in exercising their functions under this Act.

We are required, by law, to review and publish a revised policy every 5 years.

The draft policy

We have now written a draft Statement of Licensing Policy for 2022-2027 and we want your comments on it.
