Since this date, the Licensing Authority has carried out a further comprehensive and considered review, taking the pandemic and its effects into account, and also gathering new data, evidence and input from relevant authorities to consider a new Cumulative Impact Assessment.

The Licensing and Gambling Acts Committee has approved for the Draft Statement of Licensing Policy and Draft Cumulative Impact Assessment for public consultation.

Why your views matter
