Open All Hours? - Licensing Aid
Open All Hours? is a network of civic societies and community organisations, which represents the interests of residents' and amenity groups in relation to the reform of the licensing laws.
This Licensing Aid website has been put together to explain how the Licensing Act 2003 works from the perspective of the residents and businesses who live and work alongside licensed premises. In the jargon of the Act these are the ‘interested parties’.
It aims to explain the main elements of the Act and how to make your voice heard effectively in decisions about licensed premises.
The site has been compiled with the help of members of Open All Hours? a network of residents associations interested in licensing issues across England, and the technical support of the Institute of Alcohol Studies.
This is not a site complied by lawyers and if there are detailed legal matters you need help on you should take proper legal advice.
