The Camden Licensing Committee has now voted to adopt a late night levy for their area.
They have agreed to exempt premises selling alcohol after midnight on New Year’s Eve and have also given a discount to premises within their business improvement district area and to premises with a rateable value of £12,000.00 or less.
It is expected that the Council will ratify the Committee’s decision at the end of January and should this be the case, the levy is likely to be introduced in April 2016.
If ratified, Camden will be the third London Authority to have a late night levy. With Authorities in Liverpool and Plymouth currently under consultation, the number of late-night levies across the country is steadily increasing from Southampton to Newcastle.
