Introduction to Licensing Policy
The policy became operational on 7th February 2005 and is reviewed, subject to appropriate consultation, regularly and at least once in every 3 years in order to assure its effectiveness in meeting the licensing objectives.
Cannock Chase District Council (The Council) will carry out the licensing function through its Licensing Policy, with the clear intention of promoting the 4 statutory licensing objectives on an equal basis. These are:
• the prevention of crime and disorder
• public safety
• the prevention of public nuisance
• the protection of children from harm
The Council has approved its Licensing Policy for discharging its functions under the Licensing Act 2003.
