Premises licence

February 3rd, 2023 by James Goudie KC

In PORKY PINT LTD v STOCKTON ON TEES BC (2023) EWHC 128 (Admin) Fordham J upholds the revocation of a premises licence following the licence holder’s breaches of regulations introduced in response to the COVID pandemic. The public safety objective in the Licensing Act 2003 was engaged. The licensing objectives were not restricted to “alcohol related” matters. The fact that public health is not a licensing objective does not exclude it from consideration of whether the public safety licensing objective was engaged and relevant.
