Review of Trafford's Licensing Policy 2021-2026

Closed 18 Sep 2020

Opened 29 Jun 2020


Trafford Council is currently reviewing its licensing policy, with the intention that any amended policy will become effective on 7th January 2021.   

The Council is consulting a range of bodies as part of this process including those that represent residents, local businesses, premises licence holders and other interested parties in the Trafford area.

The Draft Statement of Licensing Policy 2021-2026 is now available (see attached link below) and we welcome your comments on the changes we are proposing to make which are highlighted in yellow. If possible we would be grateful if you could complete the attached questionnaire which asks general questions about your experiences of licensing in Trafford; and specific questions about the Council’s Cumulative Impact policy.

Why we are consulting

Trafford Council's Statement of Licensing Policy is a document we must produce by law.  It sets out our approach to licensing in Trafford and must be produced (at least) every 5 years.  It gives clear guidance to licence holders, applicants and people who may comment on licence applications of our policies and expectations. The council is legally obliged to have regard to the Statement of Licensing Policy when making decisions regarding licence applications or reviews. 


What happens next

Your views will be used to update the policy which will be produced by January 2021
