Business & Planning Bill Webinar

The Business and Planning Bill (which is unlikely to become an Act before at least 21st July) introduces a relaxed process to allow tables and chairs to be placed on the highway. It also allows off sales of alcohol from premises licences and introduces a summary review mechanism for off sales. It extends certain planning permissions and environmental impact assessments to take account of the impact of lockdown. 

Due to exceptional demand the original webinars are now full and we have added a further Webinar on Wednesday 8th July in the morning.


This half day webinar examines the licensing aspects in detail and considers their practical impact (it does not consider the Planning aspects).


What does it change?


How will local authorities deal with those changes?


What will be the consequences of those changes? 


Full course material will be provided together with joining instructions to access the webinar which will be hosted via Microsoft Teams.  


Pavement Licences 

What can be permitted? How is an application made? How is an application determined? Can conditions be attached? What are the practical effects of this? 


Off sales of alcohol 

What can be permitted and in what circumstances? How is this effected? How do the summary and full reviews in relation to off sales work?. 


The webinar rounds off with a general Question and Answer session.


This half day webinar is essential for Officers and Members of local authorities, Police Officers, Lawyers, Licensing Consultants and anyone who has a professional interest in the licensing and hospitality trades.
