What is the Council's Licensing Policy?

Under the Licensing Act 2003, each Licensing Authority is required to prepare and publish a statement of its licensing policy every five years. The policy sets out the general policies that the Licensing Authority will apply when granting licences. It is produced following consultation with existing licence holders, businesses, residents and 'responsible authorities'. It is based on the four licensing objectives which are:

  • Prevention of crime and disorder
  • Promoting public safety
  • Prevention of public nuisance
  • Protection of children from harm

Great Yarmouth Borough Council hereby gives notice (PDF) [77KB] (opens new window)  that it intends to publish a revision to its Licensing Policy (PDF) [376KB] (opens new window)

The revised Licensing Policy will be published on 9 December 2020 and will come into effect on 7 January 2021.
