LC107

Regulatory Easement in Respect of Off-Sales Alcohol

Minutes:

The Committee were advised that the Local Authority has received notification from the Home Office that the regulatory easement made in 2020 in respect of off-sales of alcohol will cease.

 

Section 11 of the Business and Planning Act 2020 modified provisions in the

Licensing Act 2003 to provide automatic extensions to premises licences that only permitted sales of alcohol for consumption on the premises (“on-sales”) to allow sales of alcohol for consumption off the premises (“off-sales”).

 

This was a temporary measure to boost the economy in response to the Covid 19 pandemic and was due to expire on 30 September 2021. Given the continuing prevalence of Covid 10, this measure was extended by the Alcohol Licensing (Coronavirus) (Regulations Easements) (Amendment) Regulations 2021(1049/2021).

 

Local Authorities have now been advised that given the absence of Covid

restrictions in England and Wales, there is no legal basis for a further extension and, accordingly, the measure will lapse on 30 September 2022.

 

RESOLVED – That the information be noted
