Highland Licensing Board consults on new liquor licensing policy statement

9th July 2018

The Highland Licensing Board has begun consultation on its next Statement of Licensing Policy for the period November 2018 to November 2023.

The aim of the Policy Statement is to promote consistency in decision-making on all types of liquor licence applications and to give applicants advance notice of the Board's likely approach to determining licence applications.

The Statement will set out the Board's policies on all aspects of liquor licensing. These will include policies on the opening hours the Board is likely to grant for different types of premises (pubs, restaurants, nightclubs, etc). The Statement will also confirm whether the Board considers there is overprovision of any type of licensed premises anywhere in Highland and, if so, what types of new premises or variations to existing licences the Board is likely to refuse as a result.

A decision on the final terms of the Policy Statement will be taken by the Board in October this year. Before making that decision, however, the Board would like to hear your views on its "Consultation Draft Policy Statement 2018-23" which sets out proposed policies, and your ideas for any additional or different policies you think should be included.

The Consultation Draft can be viewed at

https://www.highland.gov.uk/info/1126/licences_-_alcohol/729/licensing_meetings_and_policies/5

Consultation responses should be submitted using the Consultation Response Form which you can download at

https://www.highland.gov.uk/downloads/file/19447/2018-23_draft_policy_statement_consultation_form

Responses should be received by no later than 31 August 2018. Address details for submission of responses are set out in the Consultation Response Form.
