Licensing Act 2003: Statement of Licensing Policy (SOLP) Review
As you are aware, the Council, as a licensing authority must carry out a consultation exercise as part of the five-yearly review of its Licensing Policy. We would like to take this opportunity to exercise the Council’s duty to consult you prior to determining and producing the statement.
The policy is a council document that reflects national legislation and guidance at a local level. We aim to update the current policy taking into account any changes that are necessary – these changes may be led by governmental decisions or by lessons learned here in Brighton & Hove. Our aim is to review the overall structure and layout, amend the “Matrix Approach”, include a Public Health section, integrate various initiatives such as the Council led “Sensible on Strength” scheme to reduce the availability of cheap super strength beers and ciders; working with student organisations to raise the awareness of alcohol harm; and night-time economy safeguarding initiatives that protect the vulnerable and raise awareness of sexual exploitation into the SOLP.
t is important that local stakeholders, statutory consultees, residents and members of the public have their say.
I would be grateful to receive your comments, any suggested amendments or improvements and your reasons for recommending any changes by no later than 5
January 2016. You can respond via email to
, via the consultation portal as above or of course, you can write to us.
