Police Reform and Social Responsibility Act 2011

Section 111: Reducing the burden: other situations

325.Subsections (2) to (6) amend provisions in relation to a range of discrete processes in the Licensing Act 2003 to reflect the introduction of this measure. The basis on which a licensing authority makes decisions in those processes is correspondingly modified. These are the processes governing a licensing authority’s decision to:


send a premises user a counter notice following police objections on a temporary event notice,


reject an application for a personal licence following police objections,


reject an application for renewal of a personal licence following police objections, and


revoke a personal licence following police objections in relation to new convictions coming to light.

326.These also amend the basis on which a licensing authority makes decisions in relation to the steps it must take at a review following a closure order.

327.Subsections (7) to (9) make provision for the application of these amendments.
