Here you can find our licensing policies, from gambling to driver policies.

We are inviting residents and businesses to have their say on the new Alcohol and Entertainment Licensing Policy. An eight-week consultation began on Friday, 21 August to Friday, 16 October 2020.

The renewed policy will decide how the Council makes decisions on alcohol and entertainment licensing issues over the next five years. The Policy will also be used by local residents and businesses preparing licensing applications and making comments on licence applications.

The consultation has now closed. We are in the process of considering the comments and will publish the final policy in due course.

You can download our licensing policies, including the draft Alcohol and Entertainment Licensing Policy, from the right-hand side of this page.
