Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Section 81 – Conditions for Part 3 licences: displays or advertising

253.Section 81 amends paragraph 9(2)(b) of Schedule 2 of the 1982 Act to expand the definition of conditions that may be imposed to include displays or advertisements “in connection” with the premises. Currently a local authority can set reasonable licence conditions with regard to displays or advertising of a sex shop that are “on or in” the premises. As a result of these amendments, conditions can also be imposed on sex shops and sexual entertainment venues licensed by the authority in relation to displays and advertising that are in other locations but that are connected with the premises e.g. flyers handed out in the streets in the vicinity or left in other pubs, or posters erected nearby.
