GUEST,Mike Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 (439* d) RE: Affected by The Licensing Act 2003 22 Dec 05

Having been involved in public events, collections an carolling for many years. I feel that the organisers of these events are more to blame than the local council; I have always had to apply for permission for a collection, or public performance if not on private property, and have always done so, well in advance of the event.

OK now I may have to pay for some of the licences, depending on what and where it is, that would previously have been "No charge Incurred" but that is the only real difference, and two events I previously would have had to pay for have been free this year as the location already had a licence.

So why didn't the organisers contact their local council for permission (10 days minimum for a TEN)and if told a TEN was required obtain it?
