Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
Again from Terry Redmond.

Check the Westminster Council links (D.C.M.S. Guidance Notes? "Not worth the paper they are printed on!" http://www.westminster.gov.uk/news/Licensing-guidance-not-worth-the-paper-it-is-written-on.cfm) and remember that Local Authorities must have completed any consultation process by November 2004.

Loads of variation in the few Draft Licensing Policies I've read so far - Westminster doesn't appear to have one, Norwich has nothing about occasional permissions, Wandsworth has extended the 72 hours to 96 hours, etc. Some want general consultation, some don't - it's bedlam.
Best of luck.
Terry
