Report of Environmental Health Team Manager.
The Licensing Team Leader presented the report to Members.
Members were advised that following consultation, it was agreed that the Cumulative Impact Assessment (CIA) would continue to apply between 8pm and 6am, as the number and density of premises licensed to sell alcohol remained a concern as did the level of crime and disorder.
Members noted that the CIA was as relevant as ever.
Officers were asked whether there would be restrictions as to where the consumption of alcohol was permitted and was advised that a Protection Order was currently out for consultation, a report on which would be submitted to Cabinet for consideration in early 2022.
It was moved by Councillor S Sheahan, seconded by Councillor J Simmons and
Council agree the retention of the Cumulative Impact Assessment when the report is considered at its meeting on 24 February 2022.
