This report sets out the Statement of Licensing Policy (Licensing Policy) that details the Council’s approach to promoting the four licensing objectives when making decisions under the Licensing Act 2003. The Policy is reviewed every five years and has taken account of changes in legislation, regulations and guidance. The renewed Policy is attached as Appendix A to the report and is being presented to the Executive for approval, before adoption at full Council.
The Council has an existing Licensing Policy which has been reviewed without there being any substantive policy changes. It sets out the standards and criteria for applications received according to the Licensing Act 2003 and how those applications will be determined and the licensing objectives promoted.
RESOLVED that the Executive:
(a) agrees the updated Licensing Policy, as detailed in Appendix A to the report; and
(b) recommends the policy to Council for adoption.
