Introduction of New Statement of Licensing Policy under the Licensing Act 2003 pdf icon PDF 153 KB

Report of the Director of Planning and Development attached.

Minutes:

The Committee considered a report of the Director of Planning and Development which sought to advise members of the statutory review of the Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy under the Licensing Act 2003, and sought approval of the policy to full Council.

The Enforcement Team Leader explained that the Licensing Act 2003 requires a licensing authority to publish a statement of licensing policy every five years. The last policy was issued in November 2016 and had served the authority well. However, this policy was now due to expire so work had been undertaken to redraft the policy, taking into consideration the experience gained over the last few years.

 

Members noted a number of new policy areas had been included in the policy, such as core hours for licensable activities, code of practice for drinks promotions and a pool of model conditions.

 

Members thanked the Enforcement Team Leader for his work on the policy and welcomed the changes, namely the list of conditions which could be used in the future. This would give the trade and members guidance on what conditions could be implemented.

 

In response to a member enquiry, the Enforcement Team Leader advised that CCTV was not mandatory for premises. However, for most premises the Police would require the addition of a CCTV condition or would consider making a representation against a premise that does not propose to have CCTV.

 

Resolved:

 

1.    The Licensing and Public Safety Committee gave due consideration the report, the draft policy and the responses received during consultation and recommend to Council that the policy is approved and implemented from the 17 November 2021.
