Alcohol and entertainment licences

Licensing policies

We have established licensing policies for some of the licensing regimes for which we are responsible. Some of these policies have been produced as a statutory requirement of the relevant legislation governing that particular licensing regime.

From time to time, we will review the policies below and in certain circumstances will consult the public and other stakeholders on any revisions.

To view any current public consultations relating to these policies please view the licensing consultation page, where you can also find documents relating to consultations which are now closed.

The current policies are set out below:
