Statement of Licensing Policy Survey

The Licensing Act 2003 requires that licensing authorities review their statement of principles. The statement of licensing policy is the document that sets out how Medway Council will administer processes required under the Act.
The existing policy has been rewritten to reflect current legislation and guidance on the matters the Council can have regard to when considering an application, the introduction of Cumulative Impact Policy areas and to confirm our arrangements for ensuring that premises comply with their licence conditions and responsibilities.
