What's your view on all night drinking?

Residents, licensees, business people and other interested parties are being invited to have their say on the impact of flexible licensing hours.

A series of consultation events is being held in Brighton & Hove next week (November 11 to 13) to hear people's views.

Changes in licensing regulations were introduced nationally in November 2005, enabling pubs, clubs, off licences and other licensed premises to open for longer.

The public consultation is being carried out as part of a study by Brighton & Hove City Council, funded by Brighton & Hove Primary Care Trust, into the impact of the changes on people's health and well-being.

The Health Impact Assessment aims to cover as wide a cross section of views as possible, hearing both about concerns and benefits brought by the changes, and identify any possible areas for improvement.

Dates of consultation groups as follows:

Tuesday November 11
Residents/public Jubilee Library 2pm to 3.30pm Licensees/businesses Jubilee Library 4pm to 5.30pm

Wednesday November 12
Licensees/businesses Brighton Town Hall 2.30pm to 4pm Residents/public Brighton Town Hall 5pm to 6.30pm

Thursday November 13
Licensed premises staff Brighton Town Hall 3pm to 4.30pm

Councillor Carol Theobald, chairman of Brighton & Hove City Council's Licensing Committee,said, "The switch to flexible licensing hours three years ago was a major change and the Health Impact Assessment will provide a citywide picture of what the effect has been on people's health and well being.

"We do not think there is a particular problem in Brighton & Hove, but this is an opportunity to take stock and get an overview of how the changes have affected everyone.

"We hope as many people as possible will take the chance to have their say on this issue and give us their views. The consultation events will be of particular interest to people working in the leisure and entertainment industry, people living near licensed premises, and people working in related areas in the public and voluntary sector."

To book a place at any of the events contact Jean Cranford, email or phone 292550
