The guidance issued under Section 182 of the Licensing Act 2003 has been revised again.
The amendments are required following the coming into force of new statutory instruments. In Chapter 7, the guidance refers to
the changes to the Temporary Event Notice forms where premises are proposing to provide relevant entertainment for example lap dancing. Reference is also made to the changes to the mandatory conditions that have recently been introduced and reference is also made to clarifying aspects of the process for EMRO’s.
There are also a number of minor revisions to clarify the advice to Licensing Authorities about such matters as use of health data to underpin decisions based on what is appropriate to promote the licensing objectives, advice on whether they wish to consider conditions to prevent the sale of new psychoactive substances and clarification that it is an offence to store counterfeit alcohol on licensed premises and that cumulative impact policies can apply to premises which do not supply alcohol such as late night refreshment venues.
