Draft Statement of Licensing Policy

Draft Statement of Licensing Policy

Why are we doing this?: 

In accordance with legislation, and guidance issued by the Secretary of State under Section 182 of the Act, the Licensing Authority is now required to determine its Policy for a further five years and publish a statement of that policy. 

Once published the Statement of Licensing Policy shall (subject to any further reviews and consultation) be in force for a further period of five years. However the document can be revised before this time as the policy is a live document which is subject to continuous review to meet the changing needs of the community, business circumstances and legislation.



What do we want to know?: 

We are seeking the views of citizens and stakeholders on the Draft Statement of Licensing Policy by no later than 05 September, 2021.

Please forward your feedback and comments to:  licensingservice@wrexham.gov.uk

Should you wish to provide feedback in an alternative format, please email your request or contact the Licensing Team on 01978 298990.

What we found out:
