Statement of Licensing policy review

A review of Gloucester City Council’s licensing policy statement has been undertaken in accordance with the requirements of the Licensing Act 2003.

Through the implementation of the licensing policy the council aims to effectively integrate the four licensing objectives with other initiatives that will:

  1. Reduce crime, disorder and anti-social behaviour;
  2. Promote public safety;
  3. Prevent public nuisance; and
  4. Protect children from harm.

We have assessed our current Statement and made some amendments to make sure it is up to date

Before determining the policy for the next five years, we are required to consult with a number of organisations, persons and bodies representing responsible authorities, interested parties (residents and businesses) and representatives of the licensed trade in our area.

We would therefore welcome comments on the Draft Statement of Licensing Policy. Amendments are shown in red.

All comments must be received no later than 12 November 2020. Comments must be submitted in writing to either Cityimprovement@gloucester.gov.uk or Licensing Section, Gloucester City Council, PO Box 3252, Gloucester, GL1 9FW.
