Cumulative Impact Assessment – Consultation

Worcester City Council is seeking comments from businesses and members of the public regarding proposed changes to the cumulative impact sections of its Statement of Licensing Policy.

This follows the development  of a Cumulative Impact Assessment, which is a new requirement in law. Cumulative Impact is defined as the impact on crime and disorder, public safety, public nuisance and protecting children from harm when a significant number of premises undertaking licensable activities such as alcohol sales and hot food sales between 11pm and 5am are concentrated in a small area.

Closing date: 25 February 2020

Additional Licensing of Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMOs) and the Continuation of the Scheme

Worcester City Council currently runs an Additional Licencing Scheme for Houses in Multiple Occupation (HMO). This scheme requires landlords to have a licence for these HMO’s and to meet property safety and amenity standards. The current Additional Licencing scheme will expire on 31 August 2020, so we would welcome your views on:

  • The impact of the Additional Licensing Scheme;
  • Whether Worcester City Council should continue the Additional Licensing Scheme

Your views will form part of the evidence base which the Council will consider before making a decision on whether to continue to declare a further Additional Licensing Scheme.

Closing date: 5 February 2020
