Seeking views on licensing policy changes
The regulation of alcohol and entertainment events in Elmbridge has the safety of our residents at its heart.
Throughout the pandemic we supported our pubs, bars, restaurants and event venues with grant packages, as well as advice on outdoor structures and keeping customers and employees safe and well.
One of the tools at our disposal in supporting hospitality businesses and residents, is our licensing policy and it is time to refresh that policy. We need to make sure the regulation of alcohol and entertainment events in Elmbridge has the safety of our residents at its heart and we need your help to do that.
We are particularly keen to hear the views of anyone who uses or delivers these popular services and activities. To see the proposed changes and to give us your views please go to: elmbridge.gov.uk/consultations.
The consultation is open for 6 weeks, until 24 June 2022.
Kim Tagliarini, Head of Planning and Environmental Health said: “Most residents will, at some time, enjoy the activities provided by our local pubs and restaurants and they should expect the services they receive to be both professional and safe.
“We are confident that the proposed changes to our policy will ensure that responsible operators can continue to provide valued leisure activities to many of our residents and visitors. At the same time, we will have the tools available to respond to problems if they do occur”.
