Purpose of committee

The Licensing Committee is a statutory committee of the Council appointed to perform the discharge of the local authority's licensing functions, except the approval of Licensing policy.  This is the responsibility of the Cabinet Member for Planning & Licensing, except where there is a statutory requirement for full Council to determine policy.

In addition, the Committee will have regard to (a) the Council's Licensing Statement, published under section 5 of the Licensing Act, 2003, and the Gambling Act “Statement of Principles” and any other policy determined by Council or the Cabinet Member for Planning & Licensing (b) any Codes of Practice and guidance issued from time to time from the Secretary of State and (c) the Council's Corporate Plan and improvement priorities insofar as these do not conflict with statutory requirements and which take precedence.


The Committee has appointed a Sub-Committee to act as a Hearing Panel.
