Licensing enforcement policy

The Council has formally adopted an updated and amended enforcement policy, which applies to all enforcement activities carried out by officers in the Licensing Service.

The policy is based upon four main principles of good enforcement practice:

  • openness
  • helpfulness
  • proportionality
  • consistency

and aims to provide a consistent approach to our use of legal powers.

A copy of the Environmental Health and Licensing Enforcement Policy - 2016 (pdf) is available for download.
