Government Issues Revised Statutory Guidance
“The Government last week issued the revised Statutory Guidance.
The Guidance contains a number of amendments, including:
These include clarification that TENS’ users shall provide clear description of locations when events are held in open spaces and particularly when adjacent plots are used; how will the user ensure that each 499 occupancy limit is maintained?
In keeping with principles of the involvement of local people in licensing there is also suggested good practice for local Authorities to notify local Councillors and residents by putting their TENS’ register on the council’s website to facilitate public assess.
This provides useful confirmation about where the sale of alcohol takes place, that the sale is not outside unless there is an outdoor bar and that if the area is simply for consumption of alcohol then there is no requirement to put the outside area on the licensing plan.
The revised Guidance is here www.gov.uk/government/publications/explanatory-memorandum-revised-guidance-issued-under-s-182-of-licensing-act-2003
In conjunction with the BII, we have created an exam compiled from past paper questions.
