Licensing Board Policy Consultation – Phase 2, closes 12 November 2023

Adapted from the post on the Council’s Consultation Hub, the Edinburgh Licensing Board is interested in the public’s views on its new draft Statement of Licensing Policy.

Closing date for online submissions:  12 November 2023.

Should you have any queries or concerns, or wish to share your views with NTBCC – please contact us by email to licensing@ntbcc.org.uk


Having taken account of the responses received to its first phase of consultation, the Edinburgh Licensing Board has agreed a series of amendments and proposals to its new draft policy statement and is inviting comment on those and the terms of the policy in general.

View the amended draft policy statement.

Responses to this second consultation will be reported to the Board for consideration in November, and the Board will then agree and publish the final version of the policy.

Full details can be found here: Licensing Board Policy Consultation – Phase 2 – City of Edinburgh Council – Citizen Space

Note that the Board has agreed to carry out a separate consultation on its assessment of overprovision, to form the subject of a Supplementary Statement of Licensing Policy. The Board is working towards a six month timeline, with the Supplementary Statement to be included in the new policy by Spring 2024.

The current Assessment of Overprovision as set out in Chapter 8 will continue to form part of the Board’s Statement of Licensing Policy meanwhile.
