Public Health and Alcohol Licensing in England LGA and Alcohol Research UK Briefing January 2013

February 1, 2013

The briefing is aimed for Local Authority councillors and officers and links the new local government responsibility for public health commencing in April with its existing licensing role. It highlights the additional opportunities to tackle alcohol-related harm through the licensing process. 

The Government has launched a consultation on the 2012 Alcohol Strategy with a proposal to introduce a public health licensing objective in areas of cumulative impact. This would allow public health related representations to be made and considered within these defined areas.

The briefing paper is on RIAMS in the Licensing Act 2003 section. https://signin.riams.org/modules/documents/317
