The Licensing Act 2003 (the Act) governs the application of sales of alcohol, certain forms of entertainment and the provision of hot food and drink between 23:00 – 05:00 hours. Camden Council acts as the Licensing Authority under the Act, and is responsible for the implementation of functions under it.
Under the provisions of the Act, the Licensing Authority is required to publish a statement of licensing policy every five years. Camden’s current statement of licensing policy took effect from the 31st of January 2016, and expires on the 30th of January 2022. Camden’s policy is therefore required to be renewed.
