(b)to exercise any other functions that may be conferred on such an officer by virtue of this or any other enactment.

(3)A person may hold more than one appointment under subsection (1) (so as to be a civic licensing standards officer for more than one local authority area).

(4)Nothing in this section prevents an officer of a local authority other than a civic licensing standards officer from being an authorised officer of the authority for a purpose of Parts 1 to 3.

(5)In this Part, a reference to a local authority includes a reference to that authority acting as the licensing authority for their area and a reference to an authorised officer of a local authority (however expressed) is to be construed accordingly.

(a)to provide to any interested person information and guidance concerning the operation of Parts 1 to 3 in the officer's area,

(b)to refer the breach to the local authority which granted the licence for consideration at a meeting of the authority.

(3)A civic licensing standards officer may only refer a breach of a condition under subsection (2)(b) if—

(b)the officer considers that it is appropriate for the breach to be referred to the authority without such a notice being given.

(4)In this section, a reference to an officer's area is a reference to—
