The Committee considered a report that sought approval that the draft Statement of Licensing Policy under the Licensing Act 2003 be recommended to full Council.

The consultation responses had been considered and a final draft version of the policy had been produced.

 

The Committee also noted positive the input of the joint Topic Group of the Towns and Communities Overview and Scrutiny Sub-Committee in developing the draft consultation document.

 

Members commended the Licensing and Health and Safety Divisional Manager and her team for the thorough exercise undertaken on the policy document.
