Licensing and public health

Alcohol Research UK has co-authored a briefing document on licensing and public health with the Local Government Association.

The document contains advice and guidance for health professionals on how to work with licensing teams, what kind of data to use in licensing representations, and where to find further advice.  You can download a full copy here:

Licensing and Public Health: An LGA and Alcohol Research UK Briefing

Alcohol Research UK is also currently working with Alcohol Focus Scotland, the LGA, the London Health Improvement Board, DrinkWise, Balance, the Institute of Alcohol Studies and the Alcohol Academy to develop a national Licensing and Public Health Network.  This will produce further materials supporting health teams in the licensing process.
