Cumulative Impact Review
Have your say on the Council’s Statement of Licensing Policy
Worcester City Council is currently conducting a periodic review of its statement of licensing policy under section 5 of the Licensing Act 2003. The policy statement sets out how the Council will approach its functions as a licensing authority under the Act.
Before determining and publishing its policy for the next five year period, the Council is required to consult with:
- the chief officer of police for the licensing authority’s area
- the fire and rescue authority for that area
- such persons as the licensing authority considers to be representative of holders of premises licences issued by that authority,
- such persons as the licensing authority considers to be representative of holders of club premises certificates issued by that authority,
- such persons as the licensing authority considers to be representative of holders of personal licences issued by that authority, and
- such other persons as the licensing authority considers to be representative of businesses and residents in its area.
A draft revised statement of licensing policy has been produced and can be downloaded from this page.
The draft revised policy has been updated to reflect changes to the law and guidance since the existing statement of policy came into effect in 2014. The changes between the draft revised version and the existing statement of licensing policy are shown with the use of red text.
Please note that the Council’s special policy on Cumulative Impact although referred to in the draft revised statement of licensing policy, is subject to a separate consultation which is due to take place shortly.
Comments on the draft revised statement of licensing policy can be sent by email to email@example.com or posted to:
Worcester Licensing Policy Consultation
Worcestershire Regulatory Services
Wyre Forest House
The consultation will remain open for comments until Friday 24 May 2019 and all comments received will be considered by the Council before the publication of a new Statement of Licensing Policy.
