Subject: RE: Affected by The Licensing Act 2003
I foresee organisers of events applying to the licensees (the council) for permission, and being granted same upon payment of a hefty fee, failing which, no permission granted.

In the early stages of this local plan - the Licensing Manager did write and indicate in the local paper that the Council would be charging a fee for this second round of entertainment permission on the same public spaces.

This idea seems to have died a death but as the Echo article stops rather suddenly, when it moves away from the general spin and on to the details - it is difficult to tell if a fee is still part of the thinking. Although I am not sure exactly how a fee could be justified.
