Statement of Licensing Policy

The Licensing Act 2003 requires us as the Licensing Authority to determine and publish our Statement of Licensing Policy at least every five years, to keep it under review and make such revisions to it, as considered appropriate. The policy has several aims. It sets out how we approach our licensing responsibilities and aims to promote the four licensing objectives under the Licensing Act 2003.
