What do we want to know:

We want your views on our proposal to introduce a Selective Licensing scheme in a designated area. The consultation will run until midnight on 10 September 2020

Prior to the COVID 19 restrictions, Environmental Health were consulting on a proposal to introduce selective licensing to an area within the borough. 

Following a review of the current situation and relevant Government Guidance we have taken the decision to resume the consultation from 23 July 2020.

Because of the ongoing social distancing measures, there will be two online events for people to hear about the proposals, ask questions and put across your views. To book, please follow the survey link to MEL Research.

We’re updating our policy which sets out how we regulate and license businesses that sell or supply alcohol, provide entertainment or late-night refreshments in the borough and we want you to have your say. 

The Statement of Licensing policy sets out the way the Council will carry out its licensing responsibilities, such as considering licence applications from businesses.

The current policy runs from 2016 to 2021 and by law it must be updated every five years.

From 25 Jun 2020 to 16 Aug 2020

Royal Greenwich is a vibrant, dynamic borough and home to many diverse communities – which is one of our greatest strengths. However, this diversity also presents challenges and inequalities which need to be addressed to make sure our borough is a place where everyone can succeed and prosper, no matter what your background.
