Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
A quick comment on Harlow's Draft.

They refer to Licensed Premises and of course your non-alcoholic coffee bars etc, requiring entertainment permission in a Premises Licence - will be correctly referred to from now on as Licensed Premises. There is a danger that if Harlow does get a sudden increase in music providing coffee bars - these non-alcoholic Licensed Premises will be included in any total count of Licensed Premises.

The Licensing Authority will recognise that the prevention, inhibition or placing of conditions for concerns based - for example on alcohol will not prevent permission being sought or given for Regulated Entertainment or inhibit or prevent such activities that are exempt. For example non-alcoholic premises requiring permission to provide Regulated Entertainment in a Premises Licence will be known and correctly referred to as Licensed Premises but will not be presenting the concerns that have come to be automatically linked to this term.   

I couldn't find the Enforcement Policy they referred to.......
