Licensing Policy

​​The Licensing Act 2003 transferred alcohol licensing from licensing justices to licensing authorities. We're the licensing authority for Rochdale Borough Council.

Our licensing policy was adopted, under the Licensing Act, on 1 December 2004, addressing issues raised during the consultation that was carried out.

Note that the actual policy is on the first 27 pages of the document. The appendices that follow the policy provide information to help licensees and potential licensees to understand what they are required to do and to help them to draft their operating schedules for inclusion in their applications. This includes the Pool of Model Conditions that is contained in Section 182 Guidance to the Act.​
