Licensing Board

Angus Licensing Board is seeking views of the public to help with the review of its Statement of Licensing Policy.

The board must publish a statement of policy applied when making decisions about licensed premises and personal licences. The board seeks to prevent crime and disorder; secure public safety; prevent public nuisance; protect and improve public health; and protect children.

The board also considers in its policy statement whether there are too many licensed premises, or particular types of licensed premises, in areas within the county.

Groups consulted include Tayside Police, Tayside Health Board, the Scottish Licensed Trade Association and organisations involved with protecting children and vulnerable adults. The consultation is open until August.

The current statement of licensing policy is available at ACCESS offices and libraries.
