Alcohol, Entertainment and Late Night Refreshment
The Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) Regulations 2020 Came into effect on the 26 March 2020.
These Regulations expand on the previous ‘Coronavirus, Business Closure Regulations’ and order further premises to close.
The Regulations also now make law some of the additional measures the Prime Minister announced in his personal address on 24th March including:
- The closure of non-essential businesses as listed in the regulations;
- The restriction on movement to essential movement only; including food shopping, obtaining medical supplies and once daily exercise; and
- The restriction on public gatherings to no more than two people in a public place except in certain circumstances such as where it is members of the same household or essential for work purposes.
Whilst we hope that Brentwood residents and business fully comply with these regulations, Brentwood Council alongside colleagues at Essex Police have enforcement responsibilities to ensure compliance.
To report non-compliance around business closure, please email details to firstname.lastname@example.org, for non-compliance around public gatherings and restrictions on movement please refer to Essex Police.
Any premises without a licence under the Licensing Act 2003 cannot lawfully sell alcohol, provide late night refreshment or regulated entertainment.
