Alcohol licensing toolkit - Alcohol Focus Scotland
Alcohol Focus Scotland has developed a toolkit to help people raise concerns about the impact of alcohol in their local community.
Local licensing boards have a duty to take account of the experiences of the people affected by their policies and decisions. This means listening to the views of the constituents they represent as well as front line workers like police, paramedics and doctors who deal with the effects of alcohol day in day out. But the bureaucracy of the licensing system means local residents and community groups can find it difficult to feed in their views.
This toolkit will help people understand and navigate the licensing process, and make sure their voices are heard.
