Report of the Director of Public Health and the Strategic Director Corporate Services and Governance

Minutes:

The Committee received a report on proposals to implement Local Licensing Guidance in accordance with the Statement of Licensing Principles.  The Statement of Licensing Policy indicates that the Local Licensing Guidance will be produced by the Council’s Public Health Team with the input of Responsible Authorities and other stakeholders as appropriate.

 

In 2016 the Council participated in a pilot project with Public Health England, to develop an analytical tool kit to assist in the collation and interpretation of relevant data in respect of licensing matters.

 

The Committee were provided with a demonstration of the toolkit which it is propsed to be published on the Council’s website and would be available to provide applicants and licensees with free and ready to access information relevant to their locality.  It would be expected that applicants would use this data as part of their application to identify how they would deal with alcohol related issues which are prevalent in the locality within which they wish to apply for a licence.

 

RESOLVED -  (i)         that the information contained within the report be noted.

                        (ii)        that the implementation of Local Licensing Guidance be approved.
