Statement of Licensing Policy and Cumulative Impact Assessment

On 7 October 2021 the Authority decided that it remains of the opinion that the number of alcohol led licensed premises with premises licences in the relevant areas of Whitley Bay and Tynemouth, described and shown in the Cumulative Impact Assessment, is such that it is likely that it would be inconsistent with the Authority's duty to promote the licensing objectives to grant any further premises licences, or variations of those licences, in those areas. A revised Cumulative Impact Assessment was published on 11 October 2021.
