The Licensing Policy sets out how Dudley Council will carry out its licensing function for a five year period and how we propose to uphold the four licensing objectives and other initiatives at local level.
The Licensing Act makes provision for this policy to be the subject of consultation and the list of consultees is attached at Appendix B of the document. We will review this policy at least every five years and consult on any proposed revisions.
The policy was last reviewed and approved by full Council on 30 November 2015. The Policy will be reviewed, in accordance with the Statutory five year cycle, in 2020.
