LICENSING ACT 2003 - PUBLIC CONSULTATION ON REVIEW OF THE COUNCIL'S STATEMENT OF LICENSING POLICY pdf icon PDF 77 KB

The purpose of this report is to enable the Council to consider comments following consultation and on the review of the Statement of Licensing Policy for Waverley, against which applications for licences under the  Licensing Act 2003 are considered. 

 

Recommendation

 

It is recommended that the Licensing and Regulatory Committee consider the representations in Annexe 3 to this report and make recommendations as appropriate to the Executive so that a final revised version of the Statement of Licensing Policy for Waverley can be approved by the Council and with a view to formal adoption in order that the revised Policy may be in place by August 2018.

Minutes:

The Committee received the Licensing Policy which had gone out to public consultation recently. Officers had received six responses to the consultation, four of which made no comment and two which proposed some slight changes relating to safeguarding and local initiatives and amendments had been made as a result of these.

 

The Committee noted that only a few minor amendments had been made to the policy following changes in legislation and these were put to the Committee. Members agreed that there should be some clarification of the meaning of an Early Morning Restriction Order and a Late Night Levy, just a sentence that explained what this was. Furthermore, there was a slight replication in the additional tabled annexe of which Officers would ensure was removed. Otherwise, the Committee endorsed the proposed changes to the Policy.

 

RESOLVED that the proposed changes to the Licensing Policy for Waverley be recommended to the Executive for approval by Council and be in place by August 2018.
