National Licensing Week Day 1: Positive Partnerships

National Licensing Week Day 1: Positive Partnerships

Monday 12th June marks Day 1 of National Licensing Week and focusses on Positive Partnerships.

Positive partnership has become the cornerstone of licensing regulation and engagement - it cuts across almost every aspect of licensing and has transformed the relationship between licensing regulators and businesses generally.

There are many ways that licensing already promotes positive partnerships.

Just to name a few - 

  • National Pubwatch groups where local businesses, council officers and police officers come together to promote a safer drinking environment in licensed premises throughout the UK.
  • Best Bar None, supported by the Home Office, local councils and the drinks industry these schemes are aimed primarily at promoting responsible management and operation of alcohol licensed premises.
  • Purple Flag which is the accreditation process for town & city centres that meet or surpass the standards of excellence in managing the evening and nighttime economy (ENTE).
  • Primary authority partnerships that offer businesses the opportunity to form a legally recognised partnership with a local authority, which then provides robust and reliable advice for other councils to take into account when carrying out inspections or dealing with non-compliance.
  • Local Alcohol Partnerships - There are a number of industry-funded schemes available to local authorities that target alcohol misuse and promote safer, better managed nighttime economies through close partnership working with councils, police, healthcare providers, licensing authorities and the third sector.

Knight Training are proud to work with our clients across the UK promoting and utilising the above schemes wherever possible.
