Closed 12 Nov 2023

Opened 2 Oct 2023


The Edinburgh Licensing Board is now carrying out the second phase of consultation on its Statement of Licensing Policy, after taking account of the responses received to its first phase of consultation

Between September - December 2022, the Board consulted on its new Statement of Licensing Policy.  The policy sets out in detail what the Board considers when carrying out its function as the licensing authority for the sale of alcohol in Edinburgh.

Why your views matter

The Board has agreed a series of amendments and proposals to its new draft policy statement and is inviting comment on those and the terms of the policy in general.

Responses to this second consultation will be reported to the Board for consideration in November, and the Board will then agree and publish the final version of the policy.
