How will ‘locally-set’ licensing fees affect Independent Festivals?
Norman Baker (The Minister of State for Crime Prevention) today informed Parliament of the publication of a public consultation to change the way fees are set under the Licensing Act 2003.
The proposal is to introduce locally-set full cost recovery by Licensing Authorities from Licensed events. The government has indicated it may set a cap on these fees.
