Licensing Policy Committee

Purpose of committee

The Licensing Policy Committee monitors and keeps under review the Council’s policy with respect to its licensing functions during the three-year period of the policy, and makes arrangements for consulting statutory consultees and other appropriate persons or bodies in relation to the Council’s policy.


The Committee then makes recommendations to the Council as Licensing Authority, as to any proposed revisions to its licensing policy during the period of the policy, and in relation to any new policy for the subsequent three-year period.


The Council is concerned to ensure that its meetings are as open as possible and confidential business is kept to the strict minimum. When confidential items are involved these are considered at the end of the meeting at which point members of the public are asked to leave.
