It is a requirement of the Licensing Act 2003 for every Licensing Authority to produce a Statement of Licensing Policy which explains how the Licensing Authority will exercise its licensing functions under the new Act. Central to the Licensing Policy Statement is the promotion of the four key licensing objectives:
- the prevention of crime and disorder;
- public safety;
- prevention of public nuisance; and
- the protection of children from harm.
The Council reviewed its Statement of Licensing Policy and Cumulative Impact Assessment in Bath City Centre in 2019. Revised versions were agreed at a meeting of the Full Council on 14 November 2019. A copy of the minutes from that meeting can be found at https://democracy.bathnes.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=272&MId=5199&Ver=4.
Copies of the documents are available via the following links:
This Statement has been prepared in accordance with the provisions of the Act, and having regard to the Guidance issued by the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport under Section 182 of the Act.
