Additional documents:


The Senior Licensing Officer introduced the report which contained the proposed Statement of Licensing Policy at Appendix 1 to the report. The Licensing Act 2003 required that a statement be published every five years with the existing policy to expire on 6 January 2021. It was confirmed that deterrence of knife crime measures and the Covid-19 impact and response had been included within the statement.


The Senior Licensing Officer confirmed that the longest consultation period could be 7-weeks, instead of the 6-weeks proposed, due to the internal processes involved in the Statement’s approval and implementation for 7 January 2021.




1.  The Statement of Licensing Policy attached at Appendix 1 to the report be agreed for consultation purposes, subject to the amendment of the following:


a.  The ‘Covid-19 Impact and Response’ sub-heading be amended to read ‘Highly Contagious Communicable Diseases Impact and Response’ and that the second ‘Covid-19’ within the section be replaced by ‘Highly Contagious Communicable Diseases’;


b.  The typographical error within the section on the Deterrence of knife crime measures be corrected; and


2.  The 6-week consultation period be agreed.
