Burnham-on-Sea & Highbridge Town Council



Have your say on the Council’s Licensing Policy

Somerset Council is inviting residents and businesses to comment on its updated Licensing Policy.

A consultation is now open for six weeks until 13 July 2023, and you can have your say here: https://somersetcouncil.citizenspace.com/licensing/licensing-policy/.

Somerset Council must review its Statement of Licensing Policy every five years. The Policy document sets out an approach to the Council’s licensing functions in accordance with the Licensing Act 2003.

When the consultation has ended, the Council will consider responses and make any appropriate amendments to the Statement of Licensing Policy. The final draft will be considered and agreed at a Full Council meeting.

The closing date for comments is 13 July 2023 and the consultation is available to view online here: https://somersetcouncil.citizenspace.com/licensing/licensing-policy/.

Alternatively, you can request a printed copy by emailing consultations@somerset.gov.uk with your details.

For further information about the policy, you can find details in Somerset Council’s Licensing and Regulatory Committee papers here: https://democracy.somerset.gov.uk/ieListDocuments.aspx?CId=195&MId=2396.
