Thread Name: A little more news on Licensing
Subject: RE: A little more news on Licensing
I think that many councils like Greenwich would prefer licensees not to realise that they can get a free entertainments licence, or at least to think that they might have to have expensive structural modifications if they do apply.

I am hoping to get to one of Greenwich council's licensing policy meetings next week to try and get some straight answers, but I'm very doubtful if I will. The council would lose a lot of revenue if everyone gets entertainment free of charge. On the other hand, they would find it very difficult to suddenly decide not to grant the concession to premises which they had previously granted licenses for money.
