Consultation on our Statement of Licensing Policy

This consultation gave you the chance to have your say on the review of our Statement of Licensing Policy which we must update every five years by law.

The Statement of Licensing Policy 2019-2024 was approved October 2019 and is available on our Licensing Act 2003 Policy webpage.



Our current Statement of Licensing Policy runs from 2014-2019.

The policy sets out how we carry out our licensing functions in County Durham to help with the following:

  • the prevention of crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • the prevention of public nuisance
  • the protection of children from harm

It covers the following licensable activities:

  • the retail sale of alcohol
  • the supply of alcohol by or on behalf of a club
  • the provision of regulated entertainment
  • the provision of late night refreshment (between the hours of 11:00pm and 6:00am).

We are reviewing our current policy

We are now reviewing the current policy and we welcome your views and suggestions for improvements in the coming 5 year period.

Have your say

The closing date for comments was 5.00pm on 3 May 2019.
