Next steps for permanent relaxation of licensing hours

Wednesday 24 July 2002

Plans have been laid in Parliament to allow pubs, nightclubs,
restaurants, registered members' clubs and bars to open for a
continuous period of 36 hours on each New Years Eve from this year, if they wish.

A draft regulatory reform order proposes the permanent relaxation of licensing hours between 11am on future New Year's Eves until 11pm on New Year's Day.

The police, local authorities and local residents will be given the right to apply for restriction orders to limit the relaxed hours in respect of specific premises which might cause disturbance, annoyance or disorder.

Public entertainment licenses permitting music and dancing would also be automatically extended in line with the relaxed hours for drinking alcohol.
