GUEST,The Shambles Licensing consultation announced! (1356* d) RE: Licensing consultation announced! 16 Dec 11

Here is the LGA's Briefing Document.

Councils already have a strong track record of working in partnership with communities to run successful events that can be enjoyed by all and which deliver substantial benefits for local areas.

Who is saying this? The LGA Group lobby don't really seem to understand that communities do not need or even wish to work in partnership with council employees - they simply wish to be allowed to enjoy such events without needing permission at every step from the council for every little aspect and for the events to be placed at risk as a result.

Only those who cannot see beyond regulation and control would consider this over regulation to be desirable. It is a bit like football referees who seem to think that the spectators have paid to come and see them. Regulation and control, at football games is most effective when no one notices that there is even a referee on the pitch.

The public areas for which my local authority has applied to itself for and granted itself additional entertainment licensing to, has an automatic 8.30pm curfew - whatever the form of entertainment taking place, even a mime act!
