Statutory Licensing Annual Report


The Service Director of Legal Services submitted the Statutory Licensing Annual Report which detailed the number of premises licences, club premise certificates, personal licences and Temporary Event Notices received or reviewed for the period 1 April 2022 to 1 April 2023.


The report gave details of each individual licence and indicated that over the last 12 months:-


·                There were 851 active premises licences (of which 201 did not permit the sale of alcohol), 89 active club premises certificates and 20 new premises licences.  One premises licence had been reviewed, which was currently within the legal appeal process.

·                218 Temporary Events Notice applications had been received which included 153 Standard applications and 65 Late applications.

·                There were 3293 active personal licences and 94 new licences issued.


In addition to the processing of licence applications, Officers work constantly within live licences to ensure that all elements of the licence are current and up to date.


In the ensuing discussion, reference was made to the following:-


·                The eligibility criteria to obtain a personal licence.

·                The Ask for Angela code phrase, which could be used by an individual who felt unsafe, vulnerable or threatened within a public house environment, by discreetly seeking help from staff at the venue.  A trained member of staff would support and assist the individual accordingly.


RESOLVED that the Annual Report be received.
