Licensing report – for meeting on August 10

In advance of the NTBCC meeting (via Zoom) on Monday 10 August, here is NTBCC's licensing report

Whilst there is not much to report this month, it is worth noting that the Licensing Board met on 6 August and the Police presented their annual report.

The senior officers who hold responsibility for licensing within the area of E Division are as follows;

  • Head of Department: T/Superintendent David Robertson
  • Specialist Operations Chief Inspector Murray Starkey - Partnerships and Events

The Licensing Department is based at St Leonard’s police station and consists of:
Inspector Robert Innes, Sergeant John Young, 3 Police Constables and 4 Divisional Licensing Administrators.

The full Licensing Board report is here: https://democracy.edinburgh.gov.uk/documents/s25062/Full%20Meeting%20Papers%20-%20Licensing%20Board%20-%206%20August%202020.pdf

NTBCC is also trying to address concerns neighbours have with the proposed beer garden at the hotel at 24 Royal Terrace.
