Hillingdon Council’s Licensing Policy

Licensing Act 2003

The Council is required to review its Statement of Licensing Policy at regular intervals to ensure that it is carrying out licensing functions in accordance with current legislation.

During this review, consideration has been given to how changes might improve the way in which services are being delivered, to make them more efficient and customer friendly.

The Licensing Act 2003 controls sales of alcohol, regulated entertainment and late night refreshment. The Council is required by Section 5 of the Licensing Act 2003 to review the Statement of Licensing Policy every five years. Hillingdon’s current policy was adopted by Full Council in January 2016 and is therefore due for review.

The regular review and adoption of the Statement of Licensing Policy ensures that the  licensing framework are up to date and effective in ensuring a safe and regulated environment for users of licensed premises.

They are now seeking views on the draft proposed Statement of Licensing Policy 2021-2026.

The consultation period is between Monday 5th October and midnight on Sunday 22nd November 2020
