Air Weapons and Licensing (Scotland) Act 2015

Paragraph 4 – Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005

296.Paragraph 4 deals with minor amendments to the 2005 Act. For example, it inserts reference to section 24A of the 2005 Act (power to request antisocial behaviour report) into section 29(4) of the 2005 Act (application to vary premises licence). A Licensing Board, when determining an application for a ‘major’ variation to a premises licence, will now be able to request that a chief constable provides it with a report on all cases, complaints or representations made regarding antisocial behaviour on or in the vicinity of the premises in question.

297.This paragraph also removes a spent reference in section 57(5) of the 2005 Act (notification of application to chief constable and Licensing Standards officer) to the previously repealed section 57(2) of that Act.
