Licensing Act 2003

Notice is given that on the 25th November 2015; the Council Assembly adopted the Southwark Statement of Licensing Policy for 2016-20. The policy will take effect on 1 January 2016

The statement of policy
The Licensing Act 2005 requires every licensing authority to approve a statement of (alcohol / regulated entertainment / late night refreshment) licensing policy and to keep this under review. The statement of policy sets out the principles the council will apply when carrying out its functions as licensing authority under the Act. This Authority has adopted a revised statement of policy compiled through public consultation carried out across 2014-15. The revised policy statement is consistent with the provisions of the Act and secondary regulations and the Guidance to local licensing authorities produced by the Home Office.
