Licensing conditions (“matrix”) for new applications London Road

New pubs and clubs

People have enquired about the terms and conditions for new Licences to be granted on London Road. Below is the “matrix” that the Licensing Authority will use to judge any application.  In the past the pattern of alcohol consumption on London Road has been a very sensitive and problematic issue!

Please note – special terms and conditions *do* apply to London Road area – it is treated in the same way as a “special stress area”

N.B. I enquired what is the definition of a “super-pub” and was told that there is no definition and therefore those particular conditions have no relevance.

2.7 The Licensing Authority will support:

2.7.1 Diversity of premises: ensures that there is a mix of the different types of licensed premises and attracts a more diverse range of customers from different age groups, different communities and with different attitudes to alcohol consumption. It gives potential for positively changing the ambience of the city or an area of it. This will have a positive effect in reducing people’s fear of crime and in increasing the number of evening visitors to the city centre. The Community Safety Strategy recognises that too many single uses in a confined area and patrons turning out onto the streets at the same time may create opportunities for violent crime and public disorder and therefore supports: mixed use venues encouraging a wider age balance. A “matrix” approach to licensing decisions has been adopted and is set out below.
