This was a consultation on the update to our Licensing Policy Statement. This relates to all licensing activities falling within the provisions of the Act, namely the supply of alcohol (either sold by retail or supplied to a club member), the provision of regulated entertainment and the provision of late-night refreshment.


Details of the consultation

Every five years, we update our Licensing Policy Statement to ensure it is factually correct and clearly explains the processes required when applying for a licence in the London Borough of Enfield. Whilst we did not alter the policy, the guidance/orders, statistics and organisations listed in the statement have changed over the years. These were updated, with residents and local organisations and businesses were asked for comments. 

The new draft Licensing Policy Statement had:

  • Clarified definitions (Section 5)
  • Updated borough statistics (Section 6) and crime statistics (Section 9 and annexes)
  • Updated responsible agencies and referral agencies such as Canal River Trust (Section 2.11) and Safer Sounds Partnership (Section 14.2)
  • Included the 2015 Statutory Guidance (1.5) and 2018 Public Space Protection Order (Section 17).
