Assessment of overprovision of licensed premises
During 2016, Perth and Kinross Licensing Board consulted on whether there is overprovision of licensed premises within its area. Following recent case law, the Board decided not to proceed further with their assessment of overprovision. Instead, it will reconsider the extent of the localities to be assessed and what information is relevant to that assessment. This process will now form part of the review of the Board's next policy statement due by 3 November 2018. It is expected there will be further consultation before that date.
