Licensing consultation

ANGUS Licensing Board is seeking views of members of the public to help with the review of its statement of licensing policy, which is undertaken every three years.

The board is legally required to publish a statement of its policy and must have regard to the policy when making decisions. The board’s policy seeks to prevent crime and disorder; secure public safety; prevent public nuisance; protect and improve public health; and protect children from harm.

Angus Licensing Board chairman Alex King said: “We are keen to hear the views of members of the public, and they can post their views on the ‘Have Your Say’ section of the council’s website at”

The consultation is open until the end of August.

Copies of the current statement are available free of charge at ACCESS offices and in libraries.
