Statement of Licensing Policy

The council publishes a statement of licensing policy at least every 5 years. After asking residents, businesses and visitors for their opinions, the latest revision of the Statement of Licensing Policy (PDF, 6MB) will be in effect from 7 January 2016.

The council’s aim is to promote the four licensing objectives:

  • prevention of crime and disorder
  • public safety
  • prevention of public nuisance
  • protection of children from harm

The policy seeks to balance the interests of both business and residents so as to make sure that Westminster continues to offer a wide choice of high quality and well managed entertainment and cultural venues within a safe, orderly and attractive environment; valued by those who live here, work here and come to visit.
