Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
If a pub does apply for the entertainment permission at the same time as their first new licence (during the transition period) are they likely have to make any major modifications to the premises before it is granted ? - sound-proofing having already been mentioned. The reason I ask is that my own LA, Greenwich has been making a nice little income out of Entertainment Licences, and I don't think that they will relinquish it witout a struggle. Requiring bouncers on the door or even sound-proofing for the average folk club or session would be ridiculous, but I'm afraid that som councils might resort to such tactics to put landlords off getting their entertainments provision for free.
