(1)A licensing authority may publish a document (“a cumulative impact assessment”) stating that the licensing authority considers that the number of relevant authorisations in respect of premises in one or more parts of its area described in the assessment is such that it is likely that it would be inconsistent with the authority’s duty under section 4(1) to grant any further relevant authorisations in respect of premises in that part or those parts.

(5)Before publishing a cumulative impact assessment, the licensing authority must consult the persons mentioned in section 5(3).

(6)For the purposes of the consultation, the licensing authority must provide the persons mentioned in section 5(3) with the following information—

(b)a general indication of the part or parts of its area which it is considering describing in the assessment;

(c)whether it considers that the assessment will relate to all relevant authorisations or only to relevant authorisations of a particular kind.

(7)Where a licensing authority publishes a cumulative impact assessment, it must, before the end of each relevant period, consider whether it remains of the opinion stated in the assessment.

(8)Before deciding whether it remains of that opinion, the licensing authority must consult the persons mentioned in section 5(3).
