Thread Name: Form 696 - Anti music legislation
Subject: RE: Form 696 - Anti music legislation
Folkiedave, I said I hadn't looked at them all. But Camden's (for example) does not say that Form 696 is required for all events - it is an example of a condition which might be imposed when granting a licence.
In the example you put forward, the licensee could only be prosecuted if the risk assessment was a condition of his original licence.
What I'm asking for is examples of where the licensing authority or the police are using this form inappropriately. If it's only being used in targeted situations for events where there is a serious problem with crime, then our objections aren't going to carry much weight. If they are being demanded for other events even where there's no real liklihood of trouble, then by all means let's man the barricades.
