Cumulative Impact Policy
The Licensing Authority is mindful of the problems that can be
created when large numbers of premises providing licensable
activities are located in close proximity, or where premises
densities are out of character with the remaining social
infrastructures of the locality. To that end, as part of the
Council's Statement of Licensing policy consultation, North
Yorkshire Police asked the Council to consider adopting a specific
policy on cumulative impact.
Following extensive consultation with the Police, members of
the public and the Licensed Trade, the policy was passed by Full
Council on 1 November 2010.
