Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

Sections 97 to 101 of the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005 make provision as to the circumstances in which closure orders may be made in respect of licensed premises in consequence of actual or likely disorder or in the interests of public safety. Those sections provide as to when a closure order may be made by a Licensing Board or a senior police officer. These Regulations set out the forms to be used when applying for or making such orders and make provision as to connected matters.
