Current consultation
Start date:

Every five years the Council is required to review, consult on and re-publish its Licensing Policy Statement. We have prepared a draft Licensing Policy Statement for consultation. Following consideration of the feedback we receive, we intend to to publish the final version of the document in January 2025.

We encourage you to read the draft Licensing Policy Statement (2025-2030), and welcome your feedback. We are especially interested in hearing your views on the key changes outlined below:

  1. Addressing risks and harms to women and vulnerable people in the night-time economy
  2. Responding to the proposed Martyn’s Law
  3. Expectations on delivery services (for example, off sales of alcohol)
  4. The proposed introduction of two new Cumulative Impact Zones in Bowes and Palmers Green
