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.
