Consultation Started: 23 Aug 2021 - Consultation Ended: 08 Oct 2021

Resolved: At the end of the petition period

Peterborough City Council, along with other Licensing Authorities, have a duty under the Act to publish a Statement of Principles and review this Statement at least every three years. The Statement of Principles sets out how the Council intends to exercise its functions under the Act.

The initial statement was published in January 2007, and has been updated in January 2010, 2013, 2016 and 2019, therefore a revised statement is required to be published by January 2022.

A draft document has been prepared for consultation purposes and can be viewed online.

The consultation runs from 23 August 2021 until 8 October 2021 and seeks views on the draft revisions. Should you wish to respond and make comment, please ensure that you do so prior to the end of the consultation period, to ensure your comments can be properly considered, prior to determination of the final policy.

A hard copy of the draft document can also be located at the council’s main offices (Town Hall on Bridge Street and Sand Martin House in Fletton Quays) and in Central Library on Broadway, during opening hours.
