Consultation: Draft statement of Licensing Policy 2024 to 2029
The Licensing Act 2003 requires that Licensing Authorities review their Statement of Licensing Policy every 5 years. The current Policy is reaching the end of its 5 year cycle, and Ashfield District Council has begun consultation on its proposed Statement of Licensing Policy for 2024-2029.
The draft policy was approved for consultation by the Licensing Committee on 10 October 2023, and is a result of regular discussions with other licensing authorities across the County, in order to ensure consistency across Nottinghamshire.
The consultation runs from 11 October 2023 until 21 November 2023.
