Licensing policy consultation
The licensing objectives are:
- the prevention of crime and disorder
- the prevention of public nuisance
- the promotion of public safety
- the protection of children from harm
There may be serious nuisance or disorder outside premises in areas with a high or exceptional number, type or density of licensed premises. Large concentrations of premises can also affect public transport, littering, and public nuisance. South Wales Police has requested we maintain a special policy in Bridgend Town Centre and have submitted evidence in support of this proposal. South Wales Police has not asked us to change the streets covered by the current policy.
If adopted, the new cumulative impact assessment has the potential to impact on the grant of new licences for:
- entertainment venues
- cultural venues
- late night refreshment takeaways
- club premises
It will not apply to Temporary Event Notices.
