Multiagency partnerships and engagement with local communities: Local Licensing Forums in Scotland
Synopsis: During our presentations to the Committee on the Liquor and Registration of Clubs (Amendment) Bill on 26 November, RaISe suggested that the Committee may wish to consider the current licensing and alcohol regulatory infrastructure in Northern Ireland in terms of how information and best practice is shared between relevant stakeholders on a regional and/or local basis. Having an effective infrastructure in which information can be shared, particularly at a local level, may be particularly important in respect of the proposals within the Bill to (a) permit further additional hours and (b) to make licensed premises and registered clubs more accessible to children and young people (under the age of 18).
