News Another one! Yet another London Borough is seeking to adopt the Late Night Levy

Yet another London Borough is set to consult on the Late Night Levy

“The Licensing Committee of the London Borough of Redbridge has agreed to consult on the introduction of a Late Night Levy, planned to come into force on 1 October 2019.

This follows hot on the heels of Southwark, who are also consulting on the levy, which is planned to take effect this September.

The levy is intended to apply to premises licensed (via a premise licence or club premise certificate) to sell/supply alcohol between midnight and 6am (00:00 to 06:00 hours). We understand there is no proposal to provide exemptions or reductions.

We have been informed that the consultation and full details will be available on the Council’s website within the next week and this will run until the 7th April 2019.

Further details to follow and we will keep you updated on the consultation process. 

In the meantime, if you have any comments or queries about the Late Night Levy, or wish to check whether one applies in your area, feel free to get in contact with us.”
