Closes 30 Jun 2019

Opened 27 Mar 2019

Overview

This consultation is being carried out to help inform the Council in considering if there are areas in the Scottish Borders where drinking alcohol in a public place should not be allowed.

Why We Are Consulting

Scottish Borders Council works with the Local Licensing Board to meet the 5 licensing objectives as set out in the Licensing (Scotland) Act 2005. The 5 licensing objectives are:

  • Preventing Crime and Disorder
  • Securing Public Safety
  • Protecting and Improving Public Health
  • Preventing Public Nuisance
  • Protecting Children and Young Persons from Harm

We would like your help to identify if there are any areas in the Scottish Borders where drinking alcohol in a public place should not be allowed.
