Consultation on licensing extended

Due to an error with the on-line portal survey Brighton & Hove City Council has restarted the 8 week consultation of the new Licensing Policy from the 9th August to the 4th October 2018.

Any comments already submitted will still be considered.

The council is carrying out a consultation exercise as part of a interim review of its Statement of Licensing Policy (SoLP), looking specifically at extending the city's Special Stress Areas and reviewing the matrix approach in relation to café bars. They will be consulting for 8 weeks from 9th August 2018. Comments should be submitted no later than 4th October 2018.

The council would like local stakeholders, businesses, residents and members of the public as well as statutory consultees and “responsible authorities” to have their say about the proposed policy.

Information can be found on-line on the Council’s Portal and responses can be submitted either on-line to, or to the Environmental Health & Licensing team, 2nd Floor, Bartholomew House, Brighton BN1 1JE.
