Last chance: have your say on Bridgend town centre licencing policy consultation

The council are looking for responses to a proposal to adopt a Cumulative Impact Assessment for Bridgend town centre.

Under the Licensing Act 2003, the council as a licensing authority has the power to publish a cumulative impact assessment (CIA) every three years.

The assessment will assist the council to limit the number or types of licence applications granted in areas where there is evidence to show that the number or density of licensed premises is having a negative impact on a particular area.

Views from the public, the hospitality sector, and other interested parties are welcome.

The consultation is due to close on Wednesday 8 March 2023.

To share your views, residents are asked to visit the council’s website.
