The Licensing Committee acts as Licensing
authority for duties under the Licensing Act 2003 and Gambling Act
2005 and is responsible for all other licensing functions. In May
2021 the Licensing Committee and the Licensing (Regulatory)
Committee merged to form a single Licensing Committee to cover the
former remit of both bodies.
Meetings of the Licensing Committee are open
to the public except where exempt information is being discussed.
We endeavour to livestream public meetings to the council’s
YouTube channel. Videos will then remain available for six months
after the meeting, although the council reserves the right to
remove a video if it deems it necessary.
If attending a meeting, you may be visible on
the livestream and video. If you do not wish to be visible on
camera, please speak to Democratic Services on arrival.
